Space Clouds

Beta client update 318.44

This has been a long time coming, multiple delays kept on creeping on and things just got out of hands.

The beta client is highly recommended if you want to connect to livetest, if you do not have the beta client and wish to install it, it can be downloaded here

The beta client should work fine on liberty but some features will not be functional as they depend on server changes.

Client specific changes in this beta:
* Multiple client crash fixes.
