Release/Change Notes for World of RoboFarmCraft   v1.13 (8379) : "Wish-list, misc improvements & bug fixes"

Notes about upcoming releases at at the end of each release notes forum post.

v1.13 (8041) : "Crews, part 2"

"Big News" items

    * Crew messaging has been added. A sort of mini-chat system, with the understanding that communication is likely not real time.

On The List!

NOTE: "The List" is updated to keep up with user feedback; your feedback matters! Everything that we've previously talked about is still "on the list", though "early user experience", "social features" and "less obstreperous game-play/UI" are being prioritized.

Plans for upcoming releases as of Jun 2, 2016:

v1.14: Focus on "first 10 minutes" user experience + VIP levels.

v1.15: Massa-bot services and other fun ways to spend your gold.

v1.16: More circuitry.

v1.17: Misc/Wish-list.

v1.18: Security.

"Eventually" ("Soon!"??): WoRFC on Apple-TV. (Or maybe Desktop. We're still thinking about the best way to go, here.)

vFuture: 100s of great ideas that I need to sort into planned releases and then release them.
