Development is proceeding very well. I am not in a position to disclose more than a few hints, but I can say we have a re-worked modern user interface in full function, and we have introduced some quite drastic improvements to the game graphics. We have also introduced some novel features to the gameplay, which were asked for a couple of times in the past (and no, they are not engineering assets!).
There will be a beta-testing phase, and as matter of fact, we have initiated preparations for it. Once again, I cannot say more, but there will be an announcement, so stay tuned.
As for release, the date is still not set.
