A very small request: please from that version on may we get a changelog.txt file, on win and linux?

You don't.
Changelog is here on the forum.

Are recommended user options taken into account when you revert options/config to default or are there any plans to introduce a seperate button for this?

I've missed this, what was the bug that was fixed concerning instant grenades?

Instant smoke grenades don't kill you anymore.

I just finished "training" mission in TWoST killing few creepers. I had four aquanauts on board with gas cannons loaded explosives rounds. All what I did is killing few enemies until all get experience. After I abort the mission. But I was surprised when on statistic mission screen I got throwing accuracy bonus for all my guys.  I'm not threw any items just grab and put down same cannons while rotating aquanauts in fire queue. Is it normal? Is this just bonus throwing experience or may be another small bug? Long ago I've read what you guys (developers of OXCE) removed free throwing experience bug fixing exploit using for throw just random staff like flares and e.t.c. that why I'm asking.
Update:
Another mission, guys who used gas cannons and keeps them in hands all battle got throwing experience too. It' may be "feature" of projectile weapons, because rounds using parabola trajectory what count as throwing?

Hi Meridian, I am getting some strange crashes with my mod with the upgrade to OXCE 6.5.1 It didn't happen before with 6.5
Firstly, did you modified any code for ArmorTransformation?

I am getting this list of warning in the bug report. It never happen before.

[22-05-2020_03-38-06]   [ERROR]   There are invalid/obsolete attributes in starting condition STR_UNDERWATERTEST. Please review the ruleset.
[22-05-2020_03-38-06]   [ERROR]   There are invalid/obsolete attributes in starting condition STR_UNDERWATERTESTMIDDEEP. Please review the ruleset.
[22-05-2020_03-38-06]   [ERROR]   There are invalid/obsolete attributes in starting condition STR_UNDERWATERTESTREALLYDEEP. Please review the ruleset.
[22-05-2020_03-38-06]   [ERROR]   There are invalid/obsolete attributes in starting condition STR_LANDONLY. Please review the ruleset.


Second for soldier transformation, for forbiddenPreviousTransformations and requiredPreviousTransformations, I am getting a node error.

Please verify. Thanks. I have included by error log.

I didn't. Yankes probably did.

These warnings exist already since May 2019, more than a year.

Looks like YAML syntax error in the ruleset.
