EMPIRE Version 1.3 is in development right now. Please take a look at this Google Drive document which contains the complete changelist. If you have any thoughts on any of it please feel free to let me know now. In about 8-10 days we'll have a short testing period. If you want to help test it out, please make sure you're signed up (our old testers should still be good). Note that being signed up for the Auro beta won't give you access to Empire (or vice versa!). PS. Check out this thread for some of the rationale behind some of the changes (its changelist is not 100% the same as this list, it's close though). EDIT: Link added.
