The v1015 update is scheduled for Wednesday 10 May 2017.
I’m proud to pay taxes in the United States; the only thing is,

The Account Portal is still out of commission due to unforeseen

— Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
Housing mannequins now correctly display shifting tie-dyed cloaks and shirts.
We had some reports of “choppy” sound playback in the v1000 Mac client.
With any luck, v1003 fixes that.
If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years,
how man would marvel and stare.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
