MMR Update #15

Release notes for June 2018 (build 18.6.24). This build contains some general fixes and enhancements, plus fixes bugs with gameplay.

Special thanks to Tim for helping to debug online games crashing on Linux machines and for How for his expertise.

There is still some more work to do to finish off the new gamepad/keyboard bindings. I hope to get this done for the next build.
