Release YC 119.1 to be deployed on January 10

During downtime on December 27th we have reimbursed skillpoints that were not applied correctly when using an attribute booster shortly after deployment of the Ascension expansion. The reimbursed skillpoints have been added as unallocated skill points.

I think you overlooked another event that happened this week. It's called Happy Rue Year. You know, the one where I undocked a purple pinata shaped like a Moros in Dodixie and purposely went Suspect for the 600 people waiting on the undock?

or if you'd like to watch it:


An accidental oversight, I'm sure. Blink

But that Moros in F4R2-Q is kinda nice too...

Under the user interface section of next week's patch notes:
Improved the performance of (re-)loading the bookmarks window (Places list in People and Places) with many bookmarks significantly, especially for jumping with open bookmarks window and when adding new bookmarks.


I might have been the only one to recently ping about this in a bug report, and I deeply appreciate CCP's efforts at cleaning up this code that probably hasn't been dusted off since 2004. o7 to the developer that braved the cobwebs to make this work better.
