Hey everyone.]

So update 98/99 has gone live which fixes the crashes (thanks for the reports).

I'm gearing up for a pretty sizable release but just wanted to check in and ask if there was any issues you're having that I should know about or any new feature requests.

Sorry for the bad comms but I'm making my way through lots of messages and posts on here. Thanks for the patience as I get through these all.

Cheers, Lj
