DayZ mod 1.7.6 update has zombies pull you from bikes, adds machetes, and new models

I cannot completely express how glad I am to learn that in the past year since DayZ took over a small portion of the internet that, while you could be pulled out of cars and torn apart by the undead walkers, if you were riding a bike, you could pass through a crowd of the biters without being dismounted. I am saddened that I only learned this fact in the patch notes which regarded this bug - nay, feature promoting bike safety - of the game.

Aside the sad removal of the steady bike there's a whole list of new additions which players will be welcome to see: less zig-zaggy zombies and new models for a start. Check out the full set of changes below.

There seems no discernible theme to this update, there are new things, fixed things, updated things, and known bugs (boo). So really the best way to relate the update is by copying in the patch notes from here (that link also has instructions on where to download the new patch from). Though I've emboldened the loveliest of the changes.

I'm afraid all the typos are their own.
