The APB Reloaded blog has been updated with a new post called The Next Big Thing. In the blog, TechMech discusses the next patch. The team has bug fixes, quest enhancements, new items, meta-grouping "for better PUG-ing" and more. In addition, known issues are outlined with a bit of information about potential fixes.
The plan had been to get the 1.5.2 build out by June 30 (per the roadmap), but right now it seems we will go past that by 'some period™', partly because of the massive amount of changes requiring a lot of testing. In the next few days we will also decide if we will use this build as the first one to go up on the Public Test World. We have recruited and selected about 500 volunteers (who do not yet know who they are I should add), and people with those accounts will be able to test builds going forward before going live to the public. The next few days will determine if the PTW system will in fact go live before 1.5.2 or vice versa.
