EIS has given us a small update about what to expect for the new year on the EIS Forums:

“First let us state that we appreciate all the die hard Trade Wars fans sticking with it through the past year or so with little or no updates. This is just a quick memo to let you know that we are now back with vigor to complete some long awaited and anticipated updates to Trade Wars, TWGS and the EIS website. To give a brief status report of what should be coming in the near future:

* .56 Code Release
* Jumpgate
* Reported web site bug fixes (including registration and links sections)”
