v2.13: Plugged leaks and better colours

Greetings, space travellers!

Today's patch contains fixes for a number of memory leaks, and should address an obscure crash related to custom character names.

We have also reworked how character name colours are assigned, making them consistent across all platforms. Base character colours are now more in-line with their sprites, and custom character colours are drawn from a pool of pre-defined colours (can be edited in assets/general/character_related/custom_colors.json).

For full details, check the Patch Notes thread, and as always, if you encounter any problems, let us know!
