The Brin release is named in honor of significant improvements to PC/NPC relations.  This release, containing
over 9,000 commits (I counted)
brings an unheard-of amount of new features and content, most of which wants you dead.
Start your adventure in a wide variety of different locations, with a selection of different starting scenarios, now with unique character traits.
Explore new locations, some of which are ridiculously big (did somebody say 'mall'?), and some of which have inhabitants that don't want to eat you for a change.  Vehicles have gotten some love, and now form a basis for an electrical network should you desire to build one.  If you've ever wanted to strap a C4 pack onto an RC car and drive it under a Zombie Hulk, you got your chance.
A few more highlights:
You want speed? We brought the speed.  You want more buildings? We have more buildings.
More configurable difficulty? got it.  Better menus? Way better menus.
Mutation chains to explore? Tons of em.  More guns? yep.
More things to bolt on your deathmobile? All over the place.

As usual, the official stable builds are available from the website:

And now it's time to add even more new stuff for the next version!
“No! I must kill the demons” she shouted
The radio said “No, Rivet. You are the demons”
And then Rivet was a zombie.

This. Is. Awesome.
I was about to leave for university, but the lecture is hardly worth my time, even under normal circumstances. And now.. well.

But I'm not excited about the stable. I'm excited that all the features that were held back for the stable can get put in now.

Crying tears of joy and sorrow right now. Joy because I've been awaiting this day for so long, sorrow because even more hours of my life are going to disappear into a void of Cataclysm starting today.
