Client Bug fixes:

* Fix broken sound effects for newer openal versions; issue #50.

* Many minor fixes.....

Data updates:
* 26 or so new inventory images
* some updates to Encyclopedia
* New readable book in-game (the story of which many Ida changes were based on)

Major map changes:
* Extensive general cleanup and bugs fixed on almost every map.
* Zirakgunda fully remade, with many changes to Zirakinbar to go along with it.
* Large amount of new enterable buildings in Idaloran
* New large cave in Aeth Aelfan
* New Grubani Ranging arena, the "no magic" area that was around it is now gone
* Several other maps have new general insides, and a few new secrets added.
* "location info" now fixed and working on all official maps (the text when you click the compass)
* a handful of other lesser buildings/caves now can be entered that weren't enterable before, in Hurquin, Irinveron, Glacmor, TG MS Garden and a few other places
* Massive reduction of 2d/3d objects in MM, KJ, and WVF to reduce lag, done without changing the maps too much though WVF will be the most noticeably different design-wise

Minor map changes:
* Irsis Ranging Arena lighting is heavily adjusted, and the arena should be more useable for those with lower perception and ranging levels
* AA storage moved to the center of AA to be more useful to AA itself and its caves, as well as further away from new Zirak storage which is barely a ship trip away
* Irin northeast teleport spot moved for a better Irin storage > Glacmor Wyrmgoth connection (replacing reliance on AA storage there)
* new limited PK arenas: Zirakgunda 120 a/d, Thelinor in north part of city 140 a/d
* EVTR is now multi-combat
* KF full map is limited to 130a/d
* For pear hunters: Many unreachable or hidden harvs have been moved or removed, pretty much all maps are now 100% chance to find it, though you can still forget to harv something or the challenge of huge maps will keep it unfound. But it's much more fair. (After a later server update that will also change which maps it appears on to be much more correct.)

Some minor map notes:
- Portland - You click the door like normal to enter Sloan's bank now, not use the building.
- VotD Gold Cave 2 - Several of the building in there required using the building. These are enterable by normal click on the door as well.
- The secret on IP main map to get in the cave has changed slightly to stop IP critters from going in it
- C2 Portal Room - The teleport spots that led to the northern part of the portal room are now non-harvestables, making them easier to step on without a mouse change to a pickaxe
- EVTR Mine - the "secret" entrance to the mine has very slightly changed to make it easier for Android use. (You'll figure it out easy enough.)
- Aeth Aelfan - The PK area has ben adjusted so there's an obvious boundary between pk and non-pk (the water and mountains, and an arch with a PK sign on it on the path)
