The full changelog is posted here.

This is most likely the last Beta, the final version is expected to be ready before the end of 2014 (depends on my free time). Please test and report any problems, so I can fix them before the final.

No, as I mentioned before - as soon as I can set a firm release date, I will post it here as News. I haven't stopped working on it, but this version is a huge update, much bigger than both Beta versions combined with a lot of additional content.
For more up-to-date information follow the forum topic (links in mod description above).

Try UPatch 1.1 Beta2 + GameRanger for Multiplayer. It worked for some players with such problems. If the problem remains, please post more details about the problem here: Aoe.heavengames.com so that we can continue this as a discussion and I will try help with what I can.
