Sword 2 Renaissance v5.0.23

Sword 2 finally received its Renaissance (v5.0.23) update. The last update (v4.1.2) was launched in June 2010. (See Sword 2 Launch.) So this update took about 8 months. The patches involved for this update are 128945, 132888, 132939, 132978, 133020, and 133056.

Gah. I wish G1 stop ninja patching though. It isn't that hard to make an announcement a few days in advance of the patch. This at least gives players a bit of time to finish whatever else that needed to be finished (e.g. crafting, stocking up items) in the current version.
