    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! Today we have the game’s next major update for you. This means that we have more significant features in the update on top of a bunch of fixes and improvements.
    To start with, we have the new in-game server browser created by Rexxar. We’ve heard your feedback on the server browser over the last two years, and it has been completely redesigned. It is much faster than before, and contains many new features. There is now a loading wheel to indicate when the browser is downloading data from Steam. The search box has been moved to the top, and includes new advanced search features, which let you filter servers by world settings, mods, ping, and much more. There is a direct connect feature which allows you to connect to a server directly by IP address or host name (e.g. keenswh.com:27016)
    You can also get complete details of a server before you join by selecting the server details button. This shows you all world settings, all mods, and all players currently online. For server admins, there is a new description box in the server config utility which lets you enter a description of your server that will be shown to users in this screen before they join.
    There are also newly updated 3rd person character animations releasing this week that you will notice when using tools or weapons. The engineer will now hold them in a much more natural position than before!

    First!

    Nice work guys, the server browser is a huge improvement over the last one. The teaser is also pretty interesting. I think it's either some new antenna (for drones or something), or maybe environmental protection to fend off those damn wolves.

    Damn, that was one hell of a teaser. Nice work Keen!

    EDIT: Except now I can't load any non-planet worlds. Game crashes.

    EDIT 2: Turns out it was a broken HUD mod. Game is fine. :)

    "- fixed wrong calculation of mass" I didn't know that this was a known issue, but it bugged me for a few days. Thanks for fixing it!
    In the teaser are those wind turbines? Looks like you guys working hard on planetary stuff (wheels, parachutes, and now this)

    Yeah, I got nervous when I saw that too. Immediately went to test one of my PMWs, and it seems to work fine (large grid at least).

    Sooo.... < and > keys no longer move through the toolbar selection groups, it can only be done with Control + number key ... is this change intended by design as a new undocumented feature, or is it a bug ?

    - fixed issue when player was sliding during mining

    So this means i can mine now without the little particles slamming me in the roof and killing me?

    Me and Orange_immortal managed to guess the teaser content last night after Aragath's hints (araleaks ftw)! Do we get a cookie? :D

    Actually, if you read Xocliw's first comment on the youtube video, you can discern that it's windmills as a new power source.
