Of Special Note
Three new 3 man instances are now available in the instance finder: Iorbar’s Peak, Seat of the Great Goblin, and Webs of the Scuttledells. These instances scale from level 20 – 85 (no, 20 is not a typo). Read the developer diary for full details!

Source and full patch notes

- The objective information for the second stage of the quest 'The Cat's Meow' will no longer disappear automatically unless the player moves out of range.
- The experience bar on the main toolbar has been updated to show experience gained and required relative to the player's current level, rather than the overall total.
- The XP bar tooltip was showing information that overlaps with what was already displayed by the bar itself. This duplicate information has been removed from the tooltip.
- Attempting to use an item or NPC which is outside usage distance will now trigger autonomous movement into range This will work for mounted or dismounted players.There is a new game option which can be used to toggle this functionality called Move To Use, which you will find on the Misc section of the UI Settings Option page.
- When a skill is re-learned it will attempt to go back to it's last known quickslot bar location.
- Encounters within Instance Finder are now sorted alphabetically.
- If you are in an Instance Finder queue and attempt to join a session play you will now be warned that doing this will kick you from the queue.
- The escape key now functions properly when a browser window is open

- “Next/Previous Item” keyboard shortcuts will now start over with the nearest item when you have a non-item selected.
- You can now see up to four escort vital UIs in instances
- Fixed an issue with the keyboard shortcuts like “select next item” where there was potential for them to not cycle through all the available choices
- “Track Nearby Quests” no longer adds trivial quests to the quest tracker if the option “Show Trivial Quest Icons in Radar” is turned off.
- When you first open up the Mounted Combat panel, the player should have the correct weapon displaying,

- A new radar mapnote which tracks nearby enemies, the Enemy mapnote, is now available.
- Any nearby character (player or non-player) which is a valid combat target will be tracked in this way. Stealthed enemies are handled correctly - the mapnote will disappear as the enemy enters stealth, re-appear when the enemy is detected, and disappear again when the enemy re-enters stealth.
- This new mapnote has ONLY an on-screen indicator. When the tracked character moves off the radar screen, thee is no arrow pointing to it.

- Note: The track enemy mapnote is not shown for enemies that will not aggro on you (trivial or neutral mobs).
