Help us help you: test 0.5.0!

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

So we’ve finally delivered our half of the bargain of making 0.5.0 beta available to you. It’s time for you as a community to help us test and find bugs. It’s been years since a full blown Vega Strike release, so doubtless there will be a few fixes before this is ready for primetime, but we hope that this beta will be at least as enjoyable for you as it has been for us to produce.

To gauge how many people are actually testing, we’ve thrown in a feature that looks a bit like a easter egg/bug having to do with one of the new station designs. Go and explore the wild blue yonder. Buy a jump drive and visit uncharted regions trade and dock.

When someone reports what we’re thinking of, I suspect we’ll be ready for primetime and our universe will have gotten enough coverage for testers!

Leave any comments you may have at the forums
and go ahead and use our bug tracker system for actual bugs.

Good luck!
