Here is a list of some of the changes:

Most briefing photos are now in color.
Custom colored briefing photos have been added to augment the briefing communiques.
Custom graphics images for the Uber Heroes
Victory Screens for each campaign
Adjustments to the Rules file
Some scenarios in SCW had some rework, while most scenarios in 1939 had major reworks.
There were some scripting errors that still needed correction than may have prohibited you from obtaining certain items.
Prestige resets now at the beginning of each campaign so there will not be prestige overflow affecting balance.
Made it easier to choose no imported core for better game play for those that do not want to play certain campaigns.

Suggestion:

To replay the campaigns so graphics wise you are in line with future campaigns.

At one point, I think on Steam, it was mentioned that in order to play 1940 when it's released, we'd need to use a core from the new (the one just posted) version of 1939; is this still the case?

No, you can use your old core, but it was suggested because we are going to use all new graphics for the Uber Heroes, that you may want to replay the earlier campaigns so you acquire the heroes in the new graphic mode. Nothing mechanically will change there.

I'm holding my breath waiting for 1940. Are we still on for later in the month? I'm getting ready to play through 1939 again so I have an updated core.

Thanks for your patience. I am about 2/3 through checking, updating and balancing the scenarios. Then it will go to the play testers for one final run through and then it will be released. I would not play 1939 again just yet as we had to make some changes to that as some things on a couple of scenarios were not working properly after the last update. I do not think it will be released by the end of the month but should be sometime in September.

Storm Over Europe has been updated with the new campaign SOE 1940 Part 1. There have been several reworks on SOE 1939 as well. The 1940-part 1 campaign is introducing new features such as Random Heros, as heroes will not be automatically allocated, and you will purchase them with prestige. There will be 3 classes of heroes to purchase. They are based on strength of the hero impact. We also have limited elite replacements per scenario, as you will be allocated so many per scenario and if used up you will have to use only green replacements. The unit.csv has had a major makeover and will be compatible as well with Panzer Corps 1 - Grand Campaign mod. We will discuss in the threads all the changes to the units mod.

We also have a makover of the first campaign, Condor Legion, which will incorporate a lot of the changes as well coming soon. We will eventually do this for 1939 as well but for now we will be working on new campaigns, 1940 part 2, 1941 East and Africa Corps.

Thank you for playing and have fun.

Need a little help. Restarted 1939 and was going well, but got to Brest-Litovsk and the Soviet General won't approach the meeting area. I completely cleared the area on Poles but they won't move. What's the trick here?

Thanks.

Never mind. I decided to have Guderian take a drive in his half-track to find the Soviet General since he wouldn't show. Found him about 10 hexes away from Brest and it worked.

This was fixed and will have an update to the mod soon. I would suggest playing one of the other branches for now.

Hmmm, I am replaying SCW right now. Looks like somehow my units are losing experience. Especially my recon cars have been at the maximum (2500) for a while but somehow they are at 2000.
Of course I am always using elite repairs and I dont lose my core units and get them back via old guard trait or someting like that.
Is there a feature in this mod? Maybe limited elite repairs?!

The maximum experience for the SCW is now 2000. If you have 2500xp units in reserve, they wont be adjusted down, but if you use them in a scenario, the xp will be reset down to 2000

I see, that should be the explanation. Although I am not sure if its always working like intended, sometimes if I do what you say the exp. stays and lets say 2.342, sometimes If feel it is reduced below 2000. But no problem after all, nothing is more boring than having maxed out experience on your units :)

What I also noticed is that the artillery got changed. Imo the changes are not that good. 122cm guns got only a range of 2 (not that good) and 150cm guns have to change to AT mode to support against hard units. Regarding the core slots It might be better to completly skip artillery und get more bombers and some at guns.
And the 210 guns are completly useless. You cant fire and move, or move and fire and since you are almost always attacking you wont get a shot with this gun. If you keep this changes I could say you have to reduce the core slots.
