People demanded a new version, because they wanted to have a superb multiplayer. From what I noticed, many people don't like 0.4's synchronization and that's why there is so much "silly talk" @Mariu22S.
It's just like buying a car sometimes. First you talk with your parents about this for few months, because you want it, need it etc. And when you finally can get a car, you see only wrecks on sale and don't want it any longer trololo.
Scripters refuse to update? Sounds interesting. Can you name someone
To be honest, I would love to see some new faces in the VCMP team. New people always bring fresh energy.
