This is probably redundant, and I apologize for that, but I ask in lieu of reading 12-15 pages of posts.
When are the minor & major updates planned for release?
The major update will take several months for development and testing, and then we want to have at least a few weeks for open beta testing (which might take a little time to set that up on the live site as we've never done that before), so for the major update it will probably not be until September, but optimistically in August. As much as I'd like to get it out sooner, anytime you change the engine as much as we are talking about, it's a pretty significant change and we don't want to repeat the last major update.
The minor update should be in a few weeks. I should have a post soon about what will be in the minor update. We always have other issues come up while we are working on these updates, usually from other games and projects, so it's difficult to put an exact date on when they will be out until we actually have the code sitting here waiting to go out.
