Now when browsing the server list you can click on a server for more information about it before joining. If you host a server you can also include some extra details by setting a URL to a .png or .jpg icon and a short description in the Config.json file.
Options such as hitmarkers, crosshairs, ballistics and maps are now available in the gameplay config section, and zombie speed in the zombies section. There's also a new feature to prevent repairing higher tier weapons.
The most notable optimizations are many repeatedly created elements now getting pooled/reused, and much more aggressive automatic batching (some mods might need to tweak their texture wrap settings due to this), but several other features were improved as well. From here the next step I hope to take is upgrading to a more up-to-date version of Unity, although this is made tricky because of a physics change between 5.2 and 5.3 affecting many of Unturned's features.
