Good day all! Today we released TANK@WAR version 1.2!

- In game sound / control options (graphical options only available in main menu)
- Some other graphical improvements
- An authentication server that players log into to play on any server afterwards, instead of registering for each server independently
- We switched to the cAudio sound library, from irrKlang so more platforms are supported (inc. Linux 64-bit) and because it has better licensing
