First off, if you didnt know, you can now mouse over anyone's portrait on eve gate and click the little magnifying glass symbol to get an enlarged version which is quite nice. Below is how big it comes out, which i think is around 512x512 or something near that.
Also Im impressed with the new contract system. I have to admit that it does have a few bugs or anoying thing but hey, its a beta. I havnt checked out all its new features but one thing i like is that pop-up box has gone away where you had to select what exact item you were wanting.
Anyway thats really all for today. There hasn't been many Dev blogs or much news floating around. if you have something interesting be sure to let me know :)
