The humanoid movement and multiplayer are still being worked on, however we wanted to get everyone a quick update that will hopefully resolve some common issues reported!

A new chair, table, doors, engines, and even a refrigerator are placeable now in 0.56!

Bug Reports

We spent today pouring through 20 printed pages of user bug reports to get them organized. Felt a bit like Santa Clause with a "naughty" and "nice" list!

20 pages of bug reports organized!

We'd like to thank everyone for their reported bugs for week 54 and 55! It has helped us narrow the major bugs down quite a bit, and we hope you'll continue to report any new bugs you might discover in the latest bug reporting thread!
