Greetings, bee friends!

Today's update has new event images for the "Step right up" event and the "They do look pretty cool" event, with the latter's Defender bee being drawn by Mim.

There are also a number of binding changes. With Binder handling input configuration, and Godot's InputMap, I figured that now might be a good time to experiment with having multiple bindings for camera panning. Unfortunately, there's a problem where an event that uses a modifier (say, Ctrl+S for save) will return true when checking for a binding without the modifier (say, S for pan down).

If this is a bug in Godot, that's going to be tricky for me to sort out before release. If it's a bug in Binder, then that likely points towards problems (whether that's a bug or just documentation leading me down the wrong path, I'm not sure) with how InputMap actions for keystrokes are stored when generated programmatically at runtime.

I'll be looking more deeply into this after release, but for now, the default binding for quick save has been moved to F5 and the default binding for quick load has been moved to F9.
