Downloads Page (thanks Frans) offers the first patch for Digital Anvil's
space game, updating it to version 1.1. Here's the deal on the 1.6 MB patch:
The Freelancer Update v1.1 is primarily a server update addressing server
stability and cheating. There are some client side fixes, the most important
being a multiplayer ID generation issue. There is really no need to install the
update unless you are running a server or are unable to play multiplayer because
you can't get an ID.
The update itself contains no localized text, therefore it is applicable for use
for the English, French, and German versions of the game. An English, French, or
German readme file will be installed depending on the language version of the
target operating system.
