This is the first release to be split into demo and full versions. The difference is that demo version currently only lets you play first eight single player levels and one multiplayer level. Rest of the built-in levels can be previewed with a time limit. The level editor is fully enabled in both versions and all user-created levels are always accessible. The number of available levels in demo version will likely increase in future as the total number of levels goes up.
Both versions will be available on Desura and as direct downloads. For direct downloads there is only one package which as such contains the free demo version. Full version functionality can be enabled by personal product keys sold separately. No DRM included.

Besides the smaller improvements and fixes, the most notable additions in this release are the new weapon, rocket launcher, and eight new single player levels.
Here's a combined list of changes since 0.5.0 alpha release:
This release also fixes an issue related libstdc++ version on many older or more conservative Linux distributions, e.g. Debian Squeeze. So if the Linux version refused to start on your computer (possible complaining about missing "version GLIBCXX_3.4.15"), now is a good time to give it another try.
