Release date: 2003-06-25
elease status: Incremental update from open beta 4 or 5.
Comment: Shipped with symbol table intact to produce stack traces.

- Compiled with different optimization settings to improve
- The game.sayAll console command is now available.
- game.listPlayers gives ip addresses in the correct order.
- The status monitor leaves more room for the server name.
- Added frame simulation stats to status monitor for beta

Known issues:
- SMP kernels can cause the server to use a lot more CPU than what
  it it really should be using; the only known workaround is to
  use a non-SMP kernel. People are also reporting success with the
  development kernels (the 2.5.x series), which is only recommended
  for the daring.
