Hi everyone, yes, I can confirm that the recent wild rumors on the internet are true: M484GCS version 9.0 will indeed be released at the end of this week. :D
Everything is already ready, just some testing to be done before the actual release. This update will have almost 10 bug fixes (most of them major fixes to long standing issues), and some new features to improve user friendliness; most importantly the Map and Shell Editors will get an "undo button", which allows the user to quickly reverse click-mistakes, and there will be some new stuff in Test Room...but I'll tell more about these improvements once the official release is made.
As usual, a massive press release will be made at IndieDB and on this site once it's out...I would say Friday is a good bet, but could be even sooner if I so decide. Stay tuned.
