Hello once again,
I just wanted to make this small post to keep you updated on how things are progressing on the preview patch of v0.3.9.5.
I had hoped to have it ready by tonight, but implementing a new clothing feature (defining 'stickers' to alter their appearance) took me a little longer than I'd planned. I've got all of the framework for the new character finished, and have also completely added the support for the aforementioned clothing feature, so all that's left for me to do is to get the writing finished off. I expect to be done with that in a few days, at which point I'll push what I've got to github and make another progress post here.
This small delay shouldn't affect the public release date of v0.4 too much, although it may be out just a few days later than my previous target of September 8th. I'll give you a better estimate on when it will be out when I make the v0.3.9.5 progress update post (in a few days' time).
