Sneak preview of August release features

Our developers are hard at work! We already have a sneak preview of some features:

  • Fully revamped interface for NPC standings
  • Better scanning (scanned signatures are persisted for the duration of a client session, no lost signatures after a jump/docking)
  • Improved map features

Please use the test server Singularity and have a look. If you spot a bug, please bug report it!
