    Update Notes - August 22, 2013

    Gameplay
    - Fixed players' current gold being networked to enemy players.
    - Fixed Spirit Breaker's charge target being networked to enemy players.
    - Picking up an armlet that is toggled on will only grant the buff if you own the armlet.
    - Autocast abilities check target type rules consistently. This should prevent Clinkz's searing arrows hitting wards, for example.
    - Added Elder Titan, Abaddon, Centaur and Troll Warlord to Captain's Mode.
    - Fixed Neutral Thunderhide not using Slam when 3 enemies are nearby.
    - Fixed Neutral Thunderhide's Slam not slowing attack speed.
    - Ancient Apparition: Frostbite debuff will prevent health gain from levelling up, extra strength or extra max hp.
    - Slark: Fixed BKB not removing Pounce's Leash.
    - Treant Protector: Fixed Overgrowth affecting couriers.
    - Troll Warlord: Fixed Illusions benefiting from Fervor.
    - Troll Warlord: Fixed ranged form sometimes being able to bash.
    - Weaver's geminate ability no longer activates when attacking wards.
    - Weaver's Time Lapse and Disruptor's Glimpse now can rewind things back to before Time Lapse or Glimpse were first skilled.

    UI
    - Runes now draw in the minimap for spectators.
    - Increased the penalty for not readying up from 45 seconds to 2 minutes.
    - Spectator stats dropdown is unlocked while listening to broadcasters.
    - Added a preference and cvar "dota_spectator_use_broadcaster_stats_panel" to allow spectators to have full control over the stats panels.
    - Private (friend/guild) lobbies now display their game name so that those browsing lobbies can get more info on what the lobby is for.
    - Changed drag-select of units to use the same hit detection as click-select. This fixes a number of issues where units would not get selected.
    - Fixed bugs that were allowing edge panning to be enabled during drag-select.
    - Reduced CPU usage of drag-select.
    - Fixed some newline formatting errors in the combat log.
    - Prevented guides for the previously-played hero from erroneously showing up at the start of the next game.
    - Added AOE hover indicator for Death Pulse.

    Economy
    - Added Waldi courier, Ocula ward, 3 HUDs and 14 hero item sets to the store.
    - Updated Sniper's workshop model files with improved weighting, including corrected smd files.

    Audio
    - Fixed bad interactions with some looping sounds and FoW.
    - Fixed Reincarnate stinger sometimes playing late when triggered in vision but out of hearing range.
    - Fixed some item cast sounds that could be heard through FoW.
    - Typing "tu" in chat no longer triggers hero "thank you" lines.

    Mac/Linux
    - Fixed crash when using certain spells / illusions on Intel HD4000. [Mac]
    - Fixed intermittent crash when cmd-tabbing. [Mac]
    - Fixed issues with older PulseAudio installations. [Linux]
    - Improved stability when showing webpages.
    - Allow setting language of audio and text separately, through Steam. (Text comes from Steam's language, audio comes from the language set in Dota 2's properties on Steam)
    - Made Dota2 respond to window manager requests to close it.
    - Fixes to make Dota2 work on a broader set of video cards on Linux
    - Fixed key repeat to work in text entry windows.
    - Fixed loading screens to show an image instead of a black screen
    - Fixed a bug preventing multiple users from playing Dota2 (at different times) on a machine.
    - Fixed sounds not working when a matchmaking game is ready to start. Added a desktop notification on Linux
    - Added XBox 360 spectating controller support.
    - Fixed crash on hero selection screen on Linux.
    - Fixed a rendering bug when turning off Specular in advanced video settings.
    - Fixed mouse offset bug and window size/aspect ratio issue when moving from full screen to windowed modes.

    edit: clarified Time Lapse/Glimpse fix.

    Some nice changes here. Quick question on the timing - are we going to see a move away from patches on Wednesday evening? Or is this just a one-off?

    edit:
    - Fixed Reincarnate stinger sometimes playing late when triggered in vision but out of hearing range.
