Another update on this. We're planning to do one more public beta update (188.8.131.52) before the first official update, which we still expect to release this week. The number of issues that came up over the weekend, especially with ships and fleets, convinced us that we needed a bit more work before we could make the first update official.
The second update is still planned for release by the end of this year and will include some improvements in several areas as well as continued fixes for reported bugs and balance tweaks.

Elliot, Erik, thank you for your work!
