Progress Update 12/02/2023

This week we are proud to announce the launch of our public release candidate. A stand-alone build that allows the public to test our latest release… before it’s official release. Note that this is a bit different from our alpha build release, which was far less stable and undeniably broken.

We have just one more week before the official release of 0.6.4 finally makes it out to public. It’s been a long time coming, so keep an eye out for it on the 9th of December.

We are very greatful for the community’s help in seeking out all of the bugs and glitches that arose after the refactoring of Thrive. Thanks to your collective efforts we were better able to narrow down the source of many of the most harrowing bugs that haunted our latest changes. Thank you Thrive Community!

    • Massively buffed mucilage jet speed.
