    I'll add a couple more onto there:

    20. Crouch walk mode (hold ctrl)
    21. Post FX can now be disabled via the settings screen
    22. Added support for 'Tip Jars'
    23. Shoutcast will now work in WebGL builds (experimental)
    24. You can now load RSS feeds into objects inworld (CORS exemptions on the feed required for WebGL)
    25. New default chatrooms (New User, Developer) to complement the global 'General' chat room.
    26. Added about 50 new script functions relating to UI (we'll update the docs soon)
    27. Voice has a separate volume slider now
    28. Voice now requires push-to-talk (hold the Alt key). To lock VOIP enabled, hold the left control key, and press right alt key once. (a notification will pop up)
    29. Avatars now interact their animations with the world, e.g. while standing on an angle feet will be placed on the ground. (experimental - some more work will be done here to smooth the effect)

    Some of the new whitelisted assets may need some further testing (RTP, Fog Volume, PlayWay), which we will do this week. We only had time to do a bare minimum implementation there.
