- If a new Battle Report is present in the player inbox, the new messages number displays now in red.

- In the base overview the Command Centers, Jump Gates and Capital are now displayed in a middle column. The reason is to be easily to look at those structures, as they are the more strategic structures of the base to others players, and the more important to look at.

Now when a game BBCode url links to an external page, a warning page is displayed, referring that the user is trying to visit a page that is not part of Astro Empires.

This was implemented to increase player’s protection from phishing attempts in game.

Sorting by javascript was implemented in the game.

It will sort the game columns faster at the player side and without any requests to the game servers.

Changes in the credits page:

Date format changed

Is now possible to choose the date format in the account/display page. Possible formats:
10 Jan 2010 (dd mmm yyyy)
Jan 10 2010 (mmm dd yyyy)
2010-01-10 (yyyy-mm-dd)

Reason: the old format dd-mm-yyyy cause some confusion to players that are used to mm-dd-yyyy format (USA, and other countries). Example, we receive lots of support tickets asking why they account upgrade last less time than expected, when they are missing the date format.

Note: The formats dd-mm-yyyy and mm-dd-yyyy have not being included in the select list, as they can cause confusion in conversations between players if they use different formats.
