Apart from the Dubai release, Raceroom updated their core product quite a bit – and I neglected to mention it.

It seems like quite an extensive update, here are the notes:

Update details:
Download size = 2.1 GB
Client version = 0.8.0.6592
Client BuildID = 4249150
Dedicated server version = 55.0.1028
Dedicated server BuildID = 4249152

Dedicated Server:
Added ability to determine the starting position of the race. When a starting grid is defined on the server, the qualifying session will be skipped entirely. The server will place players on the grid in the exact order defined by the server administrator and will not perform any sorting by performance index.
Added ability to import users from a given leaderboard and a given team name to pre-populate the starting grid.
Added a chat box in the dedicated server interface to allow the broadcasting of messages to all players from the server admin.
Added a Weight Manager tool to easily manage the administration of success ballast for a large number of players throughout a league championship. The manager can be pointed at the result of a past race and all players can be assigned weight following any kind of regulation with the help of custom formula’s.
Added a latency indicator next to each of the connected players. It shows an average value that is calculated over a full minute.

Game:
Adjustments to Slowdown penalties that have been too harsh since the previous update, especially in high-speed corners.
Increased connection timeouts from 30 seconds to 60 seconds in the hope to reduce the number of disconnects from multiplayer sessions.
Improved automatic choice of graphic settings (at first start) based on the detected hardware.
Improved visibility of the message stating a game restart is required after switching to another monitor in fullscreen mode.
An attempt at getting rid of weird laser weapon sounds when cars transition from track to their garage position ( example )
Fixed saving of two identical screenshots when pressing the screenshot key while on a menu
