Each season will have a certain set of different weather types and each weather type affects the growth rates of trees, cattle and farm harvesting yields. WARNING snow and rain particles can reduce FPS rates on weaker video cards - you can disable them in the Video Options menu.

    Added motion capture animations of movements with different types of weapons and some other war stance movements
    Implemented large animal traps. Once triggered by stepping on them, players, horses and wild animals receive a moderate amount of damage and are rooted for a short duration of time. Watch your step now!
    Tweaked ballistics of some ranged weaponry, including fire arrows damage versus stone buildings
    Added mass production recipes for charcoal, glass and linen
    You can now rotate the camera while sitting, resting or yielding by holding the “V” button
    Tracking now provides visible footsteps. You can now distinguish by the track the type of animal you are going to find.
    Updated multiple art assets and added craftable snowballs and snowmen that can be used for fun or to craft snow fortresses! ;)
Bug fixes:
    Fixed multiple client side crashes (expect more fixes coming out “soon™”)

    Fixed network code related bugs where you could see horses and players rubberbanding and jittering for no apparent reason
    Multiple render and visualization related bug fixes

    You no longer need to manually return to a war stance after you have ran out of breath while in combat
    Fixed terraforming related dupe bug

Patch notes (ver. 09/09/15

    Implemented random events functionality. Now, while walking in peace mode or performing different crafting actions, there is a certain chance that a random event will occur.

Server admins can tweak chances of such events occurring by tweaking world config:
    Implemented body turning inertia. You can no longer instantly make a 180 degree turn. The weight of your equipment affect your turning speed. So a full plate warrior will turn significantly slower than a person not wearing armor.
    Added some realism to swimming mechanics. While swimming on the surface, you will drain your Hard Stamina. While diving underwater, your soft Stamina will be drained (quite fast). If you deplete either of those stamina pools while in the water - you’re dead. The weight of your equipment and Swimming skill value affects how fast these stamina pools will be drained while swimming.
    Implemented new /stuck mechanic. It should free your character if you get into a situation where you cannot move
    Tweaked range and trajectory of ranged weapons projectiles.
    Added/fixed Permadeath world mode. Any character that dies in that mode will be completely removed from the server and you will have to create a new one from the scratch
    Added/fixed Colonization world mode. The aim of that mode is to build a Large Keep as soon as possible. After that, the game turns into sandbox mode.

    A proper horse carcass is now spawned upon rideable horse death
    Fixed a client crash that would sometimes occur while interacting with a hotbar
    Fixed a minor bug where dung quality was calculated improperly if all animals inside coop/barn/stable are dead
