Verse updates

Users can also now query the state of a fort_character, including whether they are crouching, on the ground, in the air, in water, falling, gliding, or flying.

Users can now use a transform when they call SpawnProp() and MoveTo() with their prop. vector2 and vector3 now have component-wise vector division.

Verse fixes

The update also brings fixes to several Verse issues, including the completion of TeleportTo() and MoveTo() with props, and dynamically spawned props no longer being incorrectly removed from the world. The issue with prop quota calculation has also been fixed.

Creator portal updates

A banner has been added to alert creators to manage projects as Listed or Unlisted for Creator Page visibility purposes.
