Update news:

_NOTE: Currently the patch version is not shown publicly. There is a possibility that a hotfix is needed - will be published either later today or tomorrow along with the new version number.

EDIT 21:04: In case you have issues with applying the patch - try to restart steam. There seems to be an issue with the newly created beta branch. I'm working on a fix.
EDIT 21:59: should be fixed and update properly now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
EDIT 18.05.: There are some ninja changes that backrolled from an old internal version for some reason (like the command squad pool choice). Will be fixed in the next days. _
