Release notes: http://arcengames.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=The_Last_Federation_Alpha_Release_Notes#Alpha_Version_.818

Restart steam to force a quicker update if you like.

This is kind of a minor version overall, but it includes some important fixes and balance updates that I wanted to get out sooner than later.  There will be another release tonight.

Caveats (Same as last time):
1. All of the Operational abilities are still having their ships slaved to your attacks, and I don't intend for that to remain the case.

2. If you are running into specific mission types that are un-fun slow in the new combat model, then please send us saves.  I tested (for instance) dropping off spacefaring tech, and it was a tense 60-second excursion or so.

Enjoy!

Quick question, suppose you want a technology that other races have - is there an option to outright buy the tech if you don't want to steal it?

Nope, just sticky fingers. :)
