Too lazy to edit it in and select the most relevant entries but for 0.8 straight from my manual:

3 new game modes: Command & Control, Skirmish and Training
Critically wounded soldiers can be revived for up to two minutes. They can use
the “Give up” button on the Caps-Lock map to opt out of waiting for a medic
Medics can now resuscitate downed soldiers which untangles them from the
ground. This is useful to make sure the epipen will do it's job
Insurgents can build hideouts to spawn at
Regular armies and the militia can deploy a heavy machine gun emplacement
The spotting system has been overhauled. Automatic spotting is practically
gone. Squad leaders can send a contact report to the commander. The
commander can confirm those reports and place markers on the map to warn
the rest of the team
Artillery and mortars have been added to the list of possible area attacks
Pistols & SMGs do not suppress other players. Shots also need to travel some
distance before they have a suppression effect
Weapons need to be reloaded manually
Bunkers & Fire bases do not resupply soldiers and vehicles anymore
Deployable assets can be placed without permission if no commander is on
the team
Rally points can be placed anywhere. They are overrun and destroyed if 3
enemies get close to them or if 6 squad members die in their vincinity
Grenade launchers need to be fired at targets at least 30-40m from the
shooter or the grenade will not detonate
All factions have a command post which is enterable by the commander. The
commander can only use his map while inside the post.
The enemy tickets are not displayed
The main gun in any armored vehicle has a 30s usage delay
Soldiers start to bleed out when their health drops below 75%
Civilian collaborators will always respawn after 2 minutes regardless of how
they died
Insurgents can be arrested using the restrainer or the shotgun
Insurgents need to defend at least 3 out of 12 weapons caches
Capturing a control point takes at least 3 men
Limited kits have been reduced in number and are only reallocated every 10
Light machine guns can be used in deployed and undeployed modes. When
deployed they can only be fired while prone but are very accurate
Deploying bunkers & fire bases does require 2 supply crates. A supply truck is
not needed. Other assets just need to be build close enough to a forward
outpost and do not require any supplies

I joined in 0.2 days, just after the release, first release I was [R-DEV] for was 0.25, first release I was lead for was 0.3.

I still have the PM conversations from the mod leads at the time who were considering packing the project in hehe. I asked if I could take over as lead for v0.3 to see if we could turn it around

I developed AAS for a bunch of community made maps for PRMM v0.2. I got permissions from the map authors to use them for PR. Some of those maps made it into PR v0.25 which was released after I joined the team. Most of them were not suited to PR, but I hated the vBF2 maps. The main thing that I learned from that excercise was stuff people were adamant would not work, actually turned out to work very well (large cap radii, very long cap times, etc).

For 0.25 after I joined the team as an R-DEV I lost my mind because there was no code repository hehe. Myself and TheRealFritz got a code repo set up for v0.3 development just after v0.25 released. That was hosted at CVSDude, then we moved it to a GloryHoundz server for.. I think v0.4 (the size of the mod got so large that our hosting costs at CVSDude got close to $200 / month which I was covering out of my own pocket).

I think v0.2 was the last release where the mod folder was version specific. Meaning it was called "prmm_01" and "prmm_02". For v0.25 I think we changed it to be just "pr". That was important because it allowed things like Game Monitor to see "pr" as a single mod, whereas prmm_02 was - as far as game monitor was concerned - a completely different mod.

The code repository was a really critical juncture for PR imo. We greatly simplfied the process to get relesaes done and standardized a lot about how we could conduct concurrent testing of builds while still allowing public play to a tester's existing PR install. We would have "pr" as the normal publicly released build, but then have "pr_0305" as the 5th test build in the 0.3 dev cycle. This made it so we could easily have multiple builds in testing and public release without screwing up players / testers.

By the time v0.4 rolled around the build process was mostly scripted and for v0.7 the build scripts were completely re-written to almost totally automate the process.

But it was an important process and supporting tools in allowing PR to release early and release often .. listening to community feedback, then addressing it in upcoming releases.

Also for v0.3 that was when we started to track PR player populations. Fritz set up a brilliant system where we could track the history of PR concurrent player populations. I was insatiable for data about how releases were doing and we've been tracking player populations ever since.

This really helps us evaluate when people are saying "j00 kilt teh PR" because their favorite sniper rifle was removed or the like. We have always evaluated quantitaviely:
- are people playing it?
... and qualitatively:
- do we like playing it?

Anyways.. um.. this started out as "I joined as R-DEV in 0.25" hehe. Or um.. in January 2006 iirc.

I think the map "Airport" featuring British para vs MEC is also retired.

First joined: v0.5, first map: original Muttrah. I just wanted to look what map is played the most and draw conclusions from that gameplay to be the worst(like strike at karkand in vBF2), but it was not bad. After that I tried Al Basrah(with the cobras and A10s still there ) and thats what got me hooked. I remember that supply drops were still in the game, though it took them 10 minutes to hit the ground . I also remember the leet specop kit on all sides, the apc/SL spawn(the apcs were like clown trucks back then ).
Ahh, good memories.
Keep up with the good work Devs

Anyways, beautiful. Brought a tear to my eye....s.
Haha yeah my favorite faction right there. Except there are no tear's just me wanting to kill more Ivan's in Silent eagle(god I love that map). Started playing in I think March got hooked to the game it's fun and the map's are a lot better than what BF2 had. You guy's have came a long way from looking at that list let's hope it gets a hell of a lot longer.
