Elite Dangerous Update 7 Progress

Greeting Commanders.

Hope you're having a wonderful start to the week.

We're pleased to say that the development of Update 7 is continuing to progress well on all fronts.
However, thanks to your continued feedback and conversation here in the Forums, we'd like to implement an additional fix to a present, reported issue which causes unintentional Community Goal abandonment.
  • A poignant example of this issue being that 'if you attempt to abandon any missions, it will abandon the CG you signed up for'.
We deem this issue to be somewhat of an additional priority, therefore the release of Update 7 is now planned for next week, whilst the team investigate and address accordingly.

Thanks for your patience!

See you in the black o7
 
680 people emplyed by Frontier.. why do we get the feeling that there are only 2 that can code working on Elite??

It destroys any hope the game can be what we want it to be when bugs cause delay after delay after delay. We are a third of a year past release now. I feel sorry for whoever is left actually coding, they need help and a lot more of them. You have the numbers Frontier..what on earth is going on over there in Cambridge?

(edited because I was right the first time, a third of a year from release by all intents and purposes)

More people working on a thing doesn't necessarily make it finished faster. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminishing_returns

Maybe it is a by-product of pastafarianism prevalence in Cambridge? ;)

(Developing a product by continually adding to a spaghetti-like existing code is bound to attract the attention of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.)
