Client Beta 6

Here's the latest and greatest version of the new client. Please give it a whirl and let us know of any problems you find. Hopefully we're getting near the end of the show-stopper problems and bugs. There's still a few bits and pieces we want to implement before putting this into production, but there should be some tweaks and improvements in this version that will be well received (like, say, the ability to chat while jumping, warping and undocking).
