Перечень изменений за прошедший месяц  +
Build 296 (6/9/12, Junior+)

Added lock for non-available vehicles by status
Online sessions:
* Changed debug outpuf of certain state information to print textual name of the state instead of numeric value
* Lobby setup request message has new parameters that specify that the sender wishes to receive. (Until now the only option was everything.)
* Admin will auto-assign user setup for newly joined users that will be used before the new member will send their requests. This will ensure that an admin always has full valid setup
* Improved the protocol for distributing setup of a user that joins a session in the lobby. There were a few situations where the user''s setup would not reach the admin and/or some members, these now work properly.
* User setup validated by admin will overwrite my local preferred setup, if it was changed during validation
* Race load syncing up to transition to data loading (work in progress)
* Renamed some events so that all event names follow the same naming convention
* If host migration happens at any point during load sequence, the new admin will request state update from all members and all members will send the update to the new admin
* Debug menu commands to join or create a session will not assert when not joined to a server, instead they will print an error.
Restructured damage manager to handle initialisation of damage brushes slightly later during boot sequence, so that memory trace module would be ready
Changed vehicle flow to use higher level discipline filter - uses ''vehicle shape'' rather than ''vehicle class''
Added an ''All'' option to the dicipline menu

* Changed debug output from DBG_Printf to use the new log in all the session implementation
* Fixed participant priority values when sending lobby events to a subset of the event members
* Race setup changes can only be made in the lobby, not later.
* On host migration in the lobby, the new admin will send setup to all members, and all members will query the setup from new admin, when they learn about the migration. Until now, each member was asking periodically until they received the reply. The two-stage operation is enough
* Admin remembers load state of each session member
* Added definitions of events to report game load state from clients to admin, to initiate load, to sync authoritative game setup from admin to all members
* Changed online interface so that functions that send events do not modify the events
* Added a hack to BAppEventQueue::_AddEventObject that will make events return correct size of extra data until the network event transmission is fully rewritten
* Added more getters to BAppEvent that return the event''s internal fields to make the above hack possible

Monterey. Tweaked/new textures & PSD file

Build 289 (29/8/12, Manager+)
Online support session:
* Improved management of the session admin member for host migration
* When session admin is changed on host migration, the new admin will no longer automatically send game setup to all members. Instead, the members will query the setup from the new admin once they learn about the admin change. This prevents a problem that setup messages from a new admin would sometimes reach session members before they learned about the admin change, resulting in the messages being ignored
* API to set player''s setup (e.g. vehicle) to be used in the session no longer modifies the setup directly; instead, the change request is sent to the session admin, who will verify the request, and if all is OK, will send the changed data
* Added callback system to the online support session
* Added debug UI commands to change local user''s vehicle

New viewer placeable trackside cars
Updated physics system to reset custom PhysX memory allocator stats instead of recreating whole allocator.

Removed asserts in flag detection that expect waypoints to be defined. This allows the system to run (though not work) even on very early wip tracks.
* Added game and user setup parameters to OnlineSupport_Session.
* Added state variables to OnlineSupport_Session, remembering DS and session connection state and a few similar pieces of information, and simpler handlers of joined/left server, joined/left session, user joined/changed/left.

* Added synchronization of game setup and user setup in session as users join the session.
* Added API for changing the game and user setup, including triggering resynchronization when something is changed.
