I'm a little slow on getting out the release notes, but I posted an update to the Rome beta branch yesterday: rev 29305.
This is still mostly a bug fixing update (see changes below), but we're hoping to get back to some more balancing and AI improvements next week.
As a note, we're working on polishing/balancing the campaign chapters in order which means most of our focus is still on chapter 1 right now. For those who've been playing the later chapters, we do appreciate the feedback and I've been filing it all in our database for reference, but we likely won't get to dealing with issues specific to later chapters for a while yet.
Thanks again for everyone's help and feedback!
