    Branch:
    • Experimental
    ETA:
    • Monday 20 January 2014, AM
    Description:

    This build is being tested on experimental branch, and contains a number of fixes and changes that have been in preparation for the last two weeks. Please note that we do not expect that this build will be quickly posted to stable branch as we anticipate at least one more update will occur to Experimental prior to being pushed to stable. Only a limited number of servers will be running this version, so be aware slots may be limited. Once we have confirmed this build is functioning correctly we will announce more information about the release to stable branch.
    • What are experimental/stable branches?
    In your steam application settings, you can choose a "beta branch". This allows you to opt in to our experimental branch to try it out.
    • Does my saved character get affected in experimental branch?
    No. It runs on a different database, so any changes will not affect your character on stable branch.
    • I can't find a slot while on experimental branch!
    Only a small number of servers run this branch. You will need to change your game back to the stable branch and play on a normal server
    • Can I join a stable branch server wil experimental branch client?
    No, you would need to change your client back to stable.
    • When will this be in stable?
    We expect stable to be updated before the end of that week (by Friday 24 January 2014).

    Branch: Stable

    ETA: Complete

    Version: 0.33.114926

    This build continues with small bugfixes and several engine changes. A late addition of a significant change to the server variable processing has provided us a major performance boost on the server of around 5-10 FPS. This helps with a great deal of issues and results in a much smoother game experience from players even on a smooth server. Once several more of these optimizations are made it will allow us to increase player/zombie numbers and enable loot and zombie respawning.

    2014-02-07
    This update was released to Stable as a critical update outside of our scheduled maintenance period. This was because of a serious issue with the connection logic that could trap some players in the "dead" state. There was also a critical bug with looting other players inventory. These have been fixed.

    Fixed

    • Art: Duplicate geometry in lower resolution LODs of flannel shirt resulted in visual bug at distance.
    • Animations: Fixed an issue where the player would stay zoomed-in in sights for reload while aiming in prone
    • Animations: Player should now be force-disarmed when clapping while holding a single-handed weapon.
    • Animations: Pointing and clapping now works even when initiated from aimed states

    • Weapons: Ballistic parameters of all projectiles tweaked for more realism (special thanks to Gews for his great analysis on weapon characteristics)

    Can't understand what the fuss is all about on all these news sites as he said the same things a few months ago on his reddit AMA :D
    I personally expect him to leave some time after they enter beta, and knowing how good he is in estimating deadlines i believe it will be in way more than 1 year xD
