You can now use SHIFT + 'Q' to quit the game at any time and SHIFT + 'O' to access the options menu while playing.
Thrusters and Maneuvering Jets can no longer be completely destroyed (no more getting stranded with a crippled ship!).
Added indicator to show which of your ship's components is currently being repaired.
In the nav computer, if you select a system that's connected to your current system, the jump point leading to that system will automatically be selected as your destination.
Improved the control of AI fighters: When a single fighter is attacking a ship with a rear turret from behind, it will make evasive maneuvers to try to avoid the turret fire; and when a group of fighters from the same faction are attacking the same target, they won't block eachother as much anymore.
Added music for when in combat mode.
Added message and music to inform you when a mission has expired, failed or been completed.
You can no longer use afterburners if the generators are destroyed.
