    OK so the release that has been in development for some time now has finally been released!

    Here are some of the major changes:
    - new and improved zoom (still need to add zoom to mouse)
    - new editor with tons of improvements (still need to add redo / undo)
    - new track complete screens with hot key shortcuts
    - new way of loading head gear and powerups
    - game is now loaded on page and not through a separate iframe which should mean faster track loads!
    - some old replays that used checkpoints may break, this was to fix those replays that were sometimes already breaking when checkpoints where used
    - full screen that works on all browsers / computers, previously for safari players only arrow keys would work which is why we removed the native fullscreen

    Some things that we will be fixing:
    - head gear size, we will be making larger
    - if ghosts loaded and no control key is touched will default on ghost

    OK, I am sure I am missing a ton but wanted to get this post out. If you have any bugs or issues please post here!

    To help us process and tackle problems in a timely manner, please provide us with as much detail as possible including your Operating System and Browser used to access the game.

    Keep posting bugs here, but we will be updating OPEN / FIXED ones here in a closed thread: http://community.freeriderhd.com/threads/open-bug-report.3201/

    One thing that I noticed and that I'm really missing is the shift-wasd camera control. I use that a bunch and it is really a step back if that's removed
    I'll check the rest tomorow

    Why is the zoom so weird? In the new editor preview, the zoom was really nice; but it's really awkward now

    It hasn't given me the single page app yet but I have the new editor. I guess I'll just have to wait a bit.

    yeah the outlines of the "info", "challenge", "retry" and "random" buttons need to be at equal size of the icon- outlines inside them

    It's on iPad, just a couple issues for me already
    -Buttons too small
    -You have to pause to zoom(annoying)
    -It lags like a b****
    -The page refreshed in the editor when I was zooming in(no lag at all)
    -You have to tap 2 times to resume after checkpoint death
    -The space doesn't work when commenting
    And this is all after playing for only 15 mins...
    e: I can't look at anyone's ghosts either...

    I've noticed that after i play a track and go to comment, space bar and a few other keys dont work, its annoying af. I tested it 3 or 4 times and every time the space bar and 'a' button didnt work. Idk what it was but i was definitely off of the track playing screen tho
    Edit; This is so sick, well done devs!

    It could be much better, but overall I think it's really nice.

    I doubt you will notice its single page.

    Looks like its a firefox issue.

    Fixing issues with the mobile version now.
    As for the pause to zoom. I think the functionality is better, you can now pan with the screen with mobile. The old zoom wasn't as good.

    For some reason, when I'm playing a track it will just randomly restart. It's happened to me thrice already, and it's really annoying.

    Camera doesn't follow ghosts to look at them.
    Good job otherwise.:)
    PD: would be great if the bug that makes tracks grainy* should be fixed. *(as if the lines shrank so the white bg can be seen between them)

    It happened two more times - I think it happens when it reaches a certain time. Char
