Looking forward to it! (meaning I'm holding off starting a new game until it arrives!)

On the subject of 'event messages' I'd like to see the 'Loss of Battlefleet' message tell me whose fleet was lost.

Undo moves yai!!! +10
Not only helps when moving and realising was a bad idea, but most important no more clicking map by mistake and you move when you want to deselect etc.

These look like excellent changes to me. :D

I am not a fan of the "small garrison" unit. They just clutter up the game for me. Can they either be removed or be made optional somehow?

I also made this point in another thread about the Russians catching the Germans up in terms of their infantry technology . . .

"Russian garrison troops at level 2 started to appear in December (1914) meaning the Russians had closed the technology gap with the Germans. Obviously the Germans would reach level three well before the Russians but I think this catching up is wrong - the Germans should always be ahead."

Can Russian development be slowed down a bit please?

Any idea on implementing Hotseat? I know it has been a loonngg time coming, but I remember it was one of the selling points in the initial advertisements.

We are uploading the final official patch this week, than we have to wait for Apple as iOS and Windows need to be released at the same time or the cross-platform multiplayer will not work.

The current Beta uses the Beta servers, but you cannot play against tablet owners with the Beta.

Building all the launchers takes just a few days, but Apple approval time can be between a few days upto two weeks, so asa as we get a greenlight from Apple both official patches will be of course released asap.
