New in 0.8.7:

0.8.6 was never released due bugs found late in the release process.
This release, 0.8.7, will most likely have it's fair share of bugs

Throne' and 'The Eastern Invasion' campaigns. User interface
improvements: shadows for labels to make them visible on each type

to holy and less vulnerable to "physical" attacks. 18 new units
added. Slovenian as new translation, 17 updated translations.
Multiplayer improvements: renewed lobby, leader indicator, random
map generator improvements and variations (Desert, Winter, Marsh),
map descriptions, Broken Bridge map. Various improvements for

movetype which has high resistance values against all "physical"
attacks and their movement is now slowed by water. Undeadfoot units
