Summer is over, but fear not, we have got a new release for you - Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.5!
This release is focused on bugfixes (most notably, some popular crashes were fixed with help from @Dutchman101 - eg. this one, code cleanups and under-the-hood improvements for developers (migration to a Docker-based environment and support for VS2017 and GCC-6). It may look like it is not much of an update, but the amount of such smaller changes should be a good incentive to update.
In other news, we have enabled some additional forum account security features for your convenience - namely a possibility to set a security question(s) for the account and support for Authy and Google Authenticator two-factor authentication. You can enable them in your Account Security settings.
- updated CEF elements and fixed red/blue color swap issue with Intel VGAs
- added 'localhost' to the hardcoded CEF whitelist
- modified launch patcher to work with more exe variants
- added black outline option for chat text
- fixed #4166 ("Engine Sounds of other Helicopters and planes missing unless you get in a Helicopter or plane.")

- fixed #3944 ("Radio titles do not always show.")
- fixed #8590 ("createEffect with some effects places it's sfx sounds to position 0,0,0")
- added guiGetCursorType(), isResourceArchived(), getDevelopmentMode(), setDevelopmentMode() (used to be client-only, now it's also server-side), debugSleep(), setVehicleModelExhaustFumesPosition(), getVehicleModelExhaustFumesPosition()
