Alpha 17.4 Stable is out!

For A17.4 we have potential performance improvements for you all.

Several video options were fixed or added to allow players to e.g. disable SSR. A memory leak was identified and taken care of!

The GFX command is no longer locked behind admin power and can now be used by any client.

We fixed a problem that caused traders to be opened at night or closed during the day.

If you find issues, please report them here on our official 17.4 Bug reporting thread.
