Bohemia has released a brand new update for the standalone version of DayZ on the Public Test Server. According to the release notes, patch 1.07 adds new content, fixes numerous bugs, and brings a number of tweaks.

Going into more details, Update 1.07 adds Repeater Carbine, .357 Rounds, 12ga Rubber Slugs and Amusement park locations throughout Chernarus. Moreover, it removes the collision from tourist trail poles and sorts the attachments icons of firearms.
