Dangerous forums announce the official release of Elite: Dangerous,
as version 1.00 of Frontier Developments' space combat sequel is now available.
The game's official website is
non-responsive at the moment, but that forum post has some details:
year legacy, and more than 2 years of development, and we're thrilled to
announce that Elite: Dangerous 1.00 is out now, available for download and play.
Thanks to everyone who played this far - see you in space Commanders.
Ed (and the whole of the Elite: Dangerous development team)

Hmm... might have to try a 'combat' Cobra then. With the Viper, using module priority, it has been acting OK, just shutting off the Cargo Hatch so far, no big issue. But some breathing room might be nice.
