v2.10 Released: Core tech updates, Stability improvements

Update: A hotfix has been added to 2.10 that addresses missing dependency issues on Windows and fixes character names not appearing in a certain dialogue branch in Story5

Greetings space travellers!

Today's update includes a number of core tech upgrades and low level changes that should improve the stability of the game. In addition to this and several more explicit crash fixes, we've also increased the likelihood of multi-planet sectors.

We are proud to also be participating in the Itch Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality along with 1,600+ games and 1,300+ other creators. The bundle has currently raised over $5.3 million for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Community Bail Fund, and will be running for another 4 days if it is something you'd like to support or help signal boost.

For full details on this update, see below, and as always, if you encounter any problems, let us know!
