New in this release: you can now change the field of view in Project Properties! This affects how wide the view from a 3D camera is. It requires the project to use the new Regular Z axis scale though, since the contraints of Normalized mode preclude altering the field of view. Changing the field of view also adjusts the Default camera Z, i.e. the height of the camera for 100% scale 2D rendering, since the mathematics requires the camera to move to compensate for a different field of view and still produce the same 2D rendering. If you want to quickly try this out, open the First person shooter template which has been updated to use a Regular Z axis scale, so you can easily change the field of view and see how it affects the 3D rendering in preview.

Other than that there's a few other changes and some optimisation work done on the new effect compositor, and a big batch of bug fixes!
