Good news folks!
What starting out as a humble update, planning for a couple of features, suddenly caught wind underneath it´s wings and the whole thing took off. An honorable mention for the huge support we got during this cycle. From all the participants on our testserver hunting for bugs, to all of the financial backers showing there generous nature.
A sincere thanks to everyone involved in making this one of the most thoroughly tested releases in the history of ION. Please, enjoy the notes!
