Greetings Galaxy,

The following is the Monthly Development Update for March 2014. SWG:ANH is open source and can be found on GitHub. You can track all commits to the servers repository here. If you are running a Testing Environment, you can report bugs on Mantis Bug Tracker. If you are interested in contributing, you can read a guide on contributing with git here.

:!: A Brief update:
Well were in the final stages of incorporating the chosen code from the new core into the old core. This is the biggest part of the rewrite. We hope to be testing this in the months to come. You may notice this moth had a lot of [Bug] and [Fixed] entry, this is due to the tireless efforts of Schmunzel integrating new technology's in to the old core putting us in a great place for future development.

[Fixed] Issue were the deed checked the ghosts parent instead of the body's parent
[Fixed] The swoops issues by taking the swoop out of the auto add/remove this will not work due to several reasons one of them being the autoupdates for the equiplist the other being auto creates and deletes for bystanders. As we cannot simply transfer the container it will be done the old fashioned way
