And a warning. If you have modified any of the HOI files, the patch will not over-write your modified files. If this is the case, you should:
1) Backup your modifications.
2) Uninstall HOI.
3) Install HOI.
4) Apply the patch.
5) Figure out what you want to do with your modifications.

All patches should be backward compatable (you don't need to start a fresh game), but it is nonetheless recommended to start a new game with each patch.

- The AI will no longer use the world market if it has good enough conversion rates.
- The AI should be slightly smarter on the world market now, and no longer setup stupid trades.
- Improved AI for creating convoys. The AI should now be a fair bit better about transporting resources home.
- Countries that get independence during the game should now get their correct AI file (if they have a unique one.)
- Countries that change tag will now use the correct AI file (as specified in revolt.txt)

- The "alliance" event command now also works for the leader of an alliance - used for example in the Molotov-Ribbentrop outcome where the USSR joins the Axis (so that works now).
- The "war" event command no longer cares about if diplomats can be sent or not.
- "coup_nation" and "make_puppet" event commands now work as intended.
