This was posted in the INS game profile, but I'm making it a thread, and adding the changelogs.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm very proud to present, Insurgency mod ver. 2.1 RC!

Currently, the only downloads are via torrent.

EDIT: Rapidshare hotlink for those who do not have torrent clients: link
It should be noted that you need the updated Source SDK (otherwise known as the orange box SDK) so I recommend you install that in your tools section before you play. Thanks for your patience and occasional asshattery :D

In short, I'm asking people to seed the torrent, its fairly epic w/ DL speeds at the moment, but we would like to keep it that way for as long as possible, also, post your thoughts on the game, and what you hope 2.1 brings to the mod.
