Open Beta 1.5.2 update now live. It updated about 5 GB for me and was quick via the updater’s torrent method (Such Torrent doge). Flew a quick mission, but missed NTTR too much. :smile:

Will see if the memory bug has been helped a bit later.

At the end of December 2015, we plan to move Ver. 1.5 out of Open Beta and make it the new released (stable) version.

quick progress, sounds good :+1:
