The primary goal of this update is to reintroduce the MP security measures that have been rolled back with the 1.88 Hotfix after they had initially caused mod compatibility issues in the multiplayer in the 1.86 Update. As such this update is limited in scope and may not contain the usual variety of fixes or general improvements.
Areas of focus (pseudo-changelog):
Added: Improvements to multiplayer security systems related to addon loading, encryption, and server checks (reintroduced with fixes and improved cache handling)
