Feb 15th - Patch Notes 0.3.3

Hello all,


We're moving our experimental branch to default today, we've done a bit of testing there and feel it's stable enough. You can check the changes below, they're all located on the changelog. We'll be releasing the next experimental patch 0.3.4 sometime next week! Thanks much for the continued support!
