Ymir Shaders Beta 3

After a long period of waiting here it finally is, the third public beta of Ymir. As some people may have noticed all of us had a lot going on lately (some of it also related to that big thing that has affected the world this year) so the development has pretty much ceased in the past few months as we were all busy with out own projects, work and such. However what also drove us away was the fact that the codebase got a bit messy and aggravating to work with over time, which lead us to deciding in favor of a proper full rewrite which will also include some minor stylistic changes as well as leading us to a (hopefully) much more polished and performant end result.
