And here are the patch notes for the latest patch:

v74.8155 Fixes
  • Fixed a rare case where custom content with empty scripts in the caching list would trigger a nullptr dereference.
  • Fixed three more memleaks in ResMan, in Party Object handling, and in mouse cursor loading respectively.
  • Fixed a client crash on game exit related to the ingame messages UI.
  • A serious issue with shadow edges generation has been fixed. Complex custom models, like some Project Q creatures, would show visual corruption. In 1.69, this resulted in writing to invalid memory and likely triggered random client crashes.
Regression Fixes
  • TXI command rotatetexture was not handled properly in the new shaders; as a result, some models had misaligned textures (cf. city interior carpets). This is now fixed.
  • SetName used to crash when multiple players were online. It doesn’t anymore.
  • We missed sending updated area names to load screens and the DM chooser list.
