According to a post at the official blog we could be seeing a release of 0.2.0r complete with the new animations and combat mechanics in the next few days! Lets keep our fingers crossed. I will be adding a new leaderboard for r as the combat change is quite significant, so get your pre-r high scores up while you still can! There is also a video that you can see that shows the new combat and animation system in action! Looks really good!
