Current agenda of development:
- Updating API
- Migrating GUI from YUI to React
- Replacing sitter passwords by authorized empires as sitters
- Overhaul Essentia economy
- Tweak buildings, ships, spies
- New Expanse with different size and heterogeneous star distribution
- and much more!
An update will follow as soon as there is more information about the reboot and possibly a release date.
