Here's a small sample of the change log:

-Added: Message of the Day panel that appears when first joining a server; it displays the server name at the top and a viewport for displaying the MOTD.txt file on the server (place just a url in the file that redirects to a web page or keep the .txt file under 2048 characters); also, clicking the "Help Guide" button will load up the Empires manual
-Added: anything spotted via the F voice menu or the scout's binoculars will have a blinking red indicator over it for all players in the HUD
-Added: vehicles now take damage (directly to the hull) from impacting with other objects; the jeep is much weaker than other vehicles to reduce it being used to ram enemy tanks and get them stuck
-Added: APCs have spawn points, if the vehicle isn't full, then spawning at the vehicle will place the player inside
-Added: APC passengers (all except the driver position) get their health refilled at 5 HP/sec and ammo refilled at the same amount as ammo crates
