Changed "Not Craftable" description to "Not Usable in Crafting" to increase clarity.
The TF badge on the Glengarry Bonnet is no longer team colored.

The Earbuds are now nameable.
Fixed Dueling badges using the wrong texture.
Fixed an issue where dueling stats did not show up on dueling badges above Bronze.
During a duel, the Dueling mini-game item used to initiate the duel cannot be deleted, traded or crafted.
The following hats now allow the paint to affect their color more (colors should not be washed out):
The Pugilist's Protector, The Hard Counter, The Bombing Run, Football Helmet, Fancy Fedora, Cowboy Hat, Engineer's Cap, Viking Helm, Respectless Rubber Glove, Batter's Helmet, Brigade Helm, Master's Yellow Belt, Killer's Kabuto, Backbiter's Billycock

Fixed a bug where the player crouching/standing animations were delayed until after (from the player's local viewpoint).
Changed the way that scope zooming works so that it is no longer affected by client-server latency, and zooming begins immediately for the local player. This fixes an issue that would give an advantage to lower ping players and penalize higher ping players.
Fixed animation problem caused by aborting bomb plant by switching weapons (â€œcrab walkâ€).
Crosshairs now have customizable size, thickness, and color:
cl_crosshairsize specifies the size of the crosshair in pixels at 640x480 resolution
cl_crosshairthickness specifies the thickness of the crosshair in pixels at 640x480 resolution
The crosshair now scales proportionately for all screen resolutions. This replaces the old scaling behavior, and the cvar cl_crosshairscale is no longer used. Players can revert to old crosshair behavior by setting cl_legacy_crosshair_scale to 1.
Setting cl_crosshaircolor to 5 enables the use of custom crosshair colors, specified by cvars cl_crosshaircolor_r, cl_crosshaircolor_g, and cl_crosshaircolor_b.
The default of cl_crosshairuseapha has been changed to 1. Alpha blending makes the crosshair much more visible on new HDR maps, and it is recommended that existing players enable this setting manually or through the options interface (Multiplayer->Crosshair appearance->Translucent).
Cvar cl_legacy_crosshair has been renamed to cl_legacy_crosshair_recoil for consistency.
Fixed inverted translucency preview on crosshair configuration panel.
Removed the ability for players to temporarily stand on and jump from thrown grenades and jumping players. Legacy behavior can be enabled by setting sv_enableboost to 1.
