Greetings!

Happy New Year!

So here's what's happening around here.

== New Campaign ==

== New Units ==

Happy new year!

Here's what we're working on.

## Version 1.5 series ##

Last month version 1.5 was released but that isn't the end of the 1.5 updates.

In particular, these features/enhancements/bug fixes are scheduled to get added in 1.51/1.52/1.53.

1. Update UI.

We're bringing the Escalation UI over to the base game. The larger fonts and general layout are easier on the eyes.

2. Replays.
