'Announced' is a bit strong More likeWhen was the last time you tried it? FDev announced a server side fix - on discovery alert spamming - this afternoon.
Next major event is GDC according to this list, which is March. Of course there is no assurance there will be an announcement then either, meaning E3 in June or Gamescom in August (I can't remember if Frontier have ever announced anything at GDC). It could be a long year...Nah, that kind of news would require at least a decent convention or a new FDEV Expo, imho.
