Space Patch Information

NameDateSpace VersionRequiresObsoleted


The main change in this patch is a set of corrections to the short contact list code, and some 0.9.x features. The fixes in here prevent a couple of SEGVs in the contact code if a non-ship object uses contact list spacecalls.

NOTE: See the information about S71115 for the changes needed to support the new console arrangements which are also in this release.
