I apologize in advance for using google translate.
The game is alive as long as the modding community pours in new content, which is fun to play over and over again.

Based on the time since the previous update, the time spent polishing and adding new content is likely to bring us a huge improvement. It's like switching from update 0.6 to 0.7 - the game has just changed, and I'm generally silent about the early updates.

Honestly, though, an updated list of additions and changes would be welcome. All the same, enough time has passed since the last released update, and everyone who played has passed (if I may say so) the game countless times.
Yes I agree. The update can wait until this December for all we care but we all need updated changelogs to theorycraft and give feedback on changes.

I think that's just wishful thinking. If the update was close we would have gotten some news already. We just have to be patient...

We do have patch notes and a confirmation that Alex has reached the playtesting phase.

I don't recall any particular advanced notice before the release of 0.9.  I don't see why 0.95's release would be different.

Well, Histidine already stated here on the 30.09.2020 that playtesting is confirmed via Twitter, although I'm not sure to which tweet he/she is referring.
Then there is Alex's tweet from the 09.10.2020 which looks like some sort of testing is going on. Not sure if this satisfies you.

While Alex is playtesting rn, it's a bit silly to guess how close the update is. Given the amount of stuff that needs a look through (new skill balance, balance of new ships/weapons, typos in new content, etc.) playtesting could last any amount of time.

well, we have a pretty broad interpretation of "close" here too.

It simply exists outside of our conception of time. Once every cycle of the universe it awakens to progress forward one step.

That's arthritis. See a doctor.

Maybe an old one is near and he senses it. Oh dear god, Alex is from Ryloth. It all makes sense now.

Well, I wouldn't comment on that topic that was created by a soul desperate for updates from the starsector, and decided to kill him with his thirst and expectation. How anxious I am for the updates of the mods I use, which are few, around 80. But there is no lack of starsector for defenders, supporters and lovers. It is enough to have read everything ascima to understand that, it is part of the life of many, even if they are not satisfied. I'm also looking forward to the promised updates, but I am happy to fill the game with mods and only stop when I reach level 60, the memory fills I have a drop in fps, the game does not save, then I stop, I look for updates of the mods I update it one by one, until I play again and scream and scream alone against the enemies I'm fighting. Congratulations to Alex for the great game, it inspired great modders to make works of art such as: ApproLight, Better Colonies, Concordance of Protection Syndicate, Diable Avionics, Dassault-Mikoyan Engineering, Kadur, Nexerim and many others of the same qualities.
This topic proved one thing: that starsector is not dead, but what has a fan you can’t even count !!! Congratulations to everyone for participating in this world that is the STARSECTOR.
