ALRIGHT SO. Sorry for dropping this one in on you so hot, but developments in the background pushed the release schedule up for this by quite a bit. In addition, there were some who wanted it out ASAP anyway, so in a sense it all worked out.
This time around, instead of 1 changelog that allowed everyone to view and edit, we started with several changelogs and mediated them to condense into one based off of the different logs and from feedback we received on the side. It was a lot messier this time around, but I think this worked out ok.
The scale of this patch is noticeably smaller due to the much faster release schedule. We're looking at another release sometime in Christmas as our next point, but no promises on that. Note that this doesn't mean that we plan to release every month or two. But just to give an idea of where our next target is.
Almost all changes from the Compromise Changelog were cut either purely due to time or were in need of more discussion. What was patched in this patch is material the team deemed to be mostly uncontentious.
As always, let us know what you think! Written feedback is preferable and we hope you have a ton of fun with 2.7.2!
We had a lot more people pipe in this time, so a notable shout out to the Discord writers! Otherwise, the same suspects as usual.
This update requires 2.7.1 in order to properly update. This is a full installer of 2.7.2
