At this time scripting API has single function, luadata.get_str(key), for reading from the datafile.

Feature #661635

Now the datafile can be provided by the scenarios too. Feature #822120.

So the ruleset might provide parser.lua, and individual scenarios using the ruleset can provide their own data.

Support for better granularity or output values has been started by adding ruleset setting output_granularity. Feature #822932.

At the moment it affects only how client shows tile outputs (if output_granularity is 10, the digit shown is tens etc)

New extra remove cause "Enter". It's for the hut entering behavior; so that behavior is now defined separately from the "Hut" extra appearance cause. This makes it easier, and sometimes more correct, to have huts that are not placed by the map generator in the beginning of the game. Feature #802768.

Added history_interest_pml ruleset setting. Feature #823245

Wit this setting, history values grows interest each turn. The idea is that older history of the equal original value is more important than recent history. By the interest mechanism older history has grown more interest than recent.

"Suicide Attack" split from "Attack". See hrm Feature #783336 and hrm Feature #787111

The "Attack" action has been split in "Suicide Attack" ("Missile") and "Attack". The "Missile" unit class flag has moved to the ruleset. This allows you to create suicide unit types without having to give them their own unit class.

The split was done a year ago but not announced here.

4 more user unit class flags. See hrm Feature #846122

Two of them have already been used to move "Missile" (hrm Feature #787111) and "CanPillage" (hrm Feature #846557) to the ruleset.
