    The newsletter has ceased to be a source of news, it just points to the sources of news.
    'Once OS X has been updated to support OpenGL compute shaders, or other technical options are available to us, we will certainly be very keen on supporting that platform.'

    With the new camera upgrade give the players a month creating videos. You will then have a hard time deciding which of the excellent ones one to post on the Newsletter. Two months and they will probably blow away most of the promo trailers you have made so far. Three months and we'll get awesome short videos based on those who write stories about the Elite universe. Six months and "Elite: The Movie" almost just as good as Hollywood can produce. There is a legal nightmare!

    Still we will need help. More body movements (already there moving the joystick etc), facial expressions, lips that move hopefully synched when we talk into a mic so we have Commanders that can ACT versus just sitting in a chair and looking around. For serious Hollywood producers who can hire real actors and love the game it is another legal nightmare...But with the ability of the Commanders to seriously come close to the actual face of a player for now I'm really excited how ED videos are about to get a quantum leap posting videos on YouTube!
