    Summary
    This week’s update brings a new batch of bug fixes and improvements. Firstly, the update now allows you to turn off solar panels. Bugs fixed this week include projected antennas broadcasting, incorrect construction stage orientation for some blocks, cockpit toolbar issues, and the control hints cube being stretched. We’ve also fixed a number of crashes caused by changes to the planetary code last week.
    Next week some major improvements for the ModAPI and ingame programming will be released. However, this will break scripted mods and some ingame scripts. If you're a modder or scripter, please see the guide linked below for what you'll need to do to fix your mods.
    Finally, keep in mind that all the changes in today's update will only be on the weekly development branch - you will not notice these if you are playing on the default stable branch.

    Ask of someone who knows very little and is starting with the mods: Which improves with roslyn ? speed of compilation? memory usage?
    What are the problems or limitations that exist to need migrate to roslyn?

    Nice list of fixes, specially glad for the planetary fixes (some of my worlds crashed since last week...).
    And can't wait for the next week modapi/pb changes!

    You might want to update the Steam News Blog - It says "You can turn off solar panels" - you have to actually come here to see that you can turn them "On/off" - which I'm assuming is a step in the right direction for power management - hopefully this'll fix the problem when you hit "Main Power" and the solar panels stop collecting because the reactor is offline.

    Also I can't say I'm surprised but nice going Keen - Prove us so wrong that you'll divide the modding populace with Stable/Development Branch, no sooner than the next version after your first stable release you go breaking mods for it on dev; Ever Heard of a thing called "Backwards Compatible Redundancy"?

    Totally not how Stable Branch Works...You pick a point In the games development and freeze it until you can catch it up to the dev version - all it means.

    [About the Teaser]

    What part of that is actually new? Seriously - the Red Ship Looks the same as the old dx9 Playfields, and the blue ship the same; we've already had weapons upgrades for quite sometime, and we've had Crashing Ship-to-Ship Ramming even longer; So really, what's new?

    Great...more **** I don't give a damn about? Their Sound guy can take a hike for all I care - waste of salary - get another coder with that budget - and hopefully one that knows how to do backwards compatible mod changes.

    I think there were a discussion with modders and all agree that it is better to break things now and not later. There are some serious exploits to fix...

    Well then we're lucky you don't work for KSH. There are actually people that enjoy a good sountrack and a realistic sound system.

    Excuse me but should think better what you say and remember the sound as it was before.
    The sound guy never stops working and improve LOT LOT the sound since entering keen software house, with errors that may have in any development. But nobody can deny the amount of improvements that add update to update, many changes and improvements in sound.
    Whenever we see updates, joked with my friends that should raise the salary to the sound guy.

    I've been patiently waiting for 2 years so I'm kind of excited the game will finally have realistic sounds.

    I think you guys should learn how branch management works.

    I definitly see a need for a development branch in which you can introduce new features.
    Please let me know how it helps people on stable branch with crashes if you keep bug fixes for those on the development branch?
