You can get the upgrade from the download page.

------- changes for V2.6.0 -------
New layout of the comms console, shows comms buttons on the left, a click-able waterfall of all messages on the right, and a filter-able list of messages in the center.
Each of the 3 lists are drag-able. There are buttons on the top-center that filter the messages that show in the center list.
Clicking on a message on the right-hand list causes it to be shown in the center list, and for the appropriate filter to be set.

Small changes to the fighter-bay card game.

The fighter-bay ship list no longer re-arranges as player fighters leave the bay.

The game no longer has just fighters. Now (internally) they are called single-seat ships, and there are different sorts of fighters and shuttles.

Now every player ship can carry one shuttle. Many player ships can carry multiple single-seat ships of different types,
but the first single-seat in the list must always be a shuttle.

In the ship cusomization menu (on server or client) players may now select a type of single-seat ship, and name each one.

In scripting, there's a new command, "set_player_carried_type", which lets the scriptor set the exant single-seat ships that are carried in a player ship.

In scripting, there's a new command, "spawn_external_program", which does what it says. Ideally to be used to start a video player, so pre-recorded videos
can pop up on the main screen.

Just tried the download and it fails each time when trying to start the game.  Is this an upgrade or a full install?

The upgrade is just the game upgrade, which should be comparably sized to previous upgrade releases.  The new missions (with the several hundred MB of video files) are not included.

It looks like the Longbow was left out - attached is a .zip with the Longbow mesh and internal, as well as an updated vesselData with the ship inserted in it's proper place.  (also fixed the description for the other two pirate ships).

Neat! Will this be an official addition to the release once it comes out on Steam (assuming it's not already released) or just a bonus for those who wish to make use of it?

I honestly wouldn't mind either way. I think the Pirates are just fine with just the Cruiser and Carrier, but of course I'll need to know how to word the Longbow's entry on the wiki. [biggrin] I'm also interested in seeing how fast it is, the Strongbow is already faster than its TSN counterpart, the Longbow must maneuver almost like a fighter. [biggrin]

I am pretty sure the Longbow is nominally part of the official roster, since at least one mission (Dawn Patrol from Armada) uses it specifically.

Can't speak to how it'll get rolled in, but I was under the impression it was official.

Updated the download with the newer Longbow (spiky version), thanks ryleyra for catching that!

Clearly there are some mission that use the new possibilities that where added in 2.6. 
Where can I find those new missions?

Right now I can only find MISS_test2, MISS_test5 and MISS_videoplaytest.

Those missions haven't been released yet. Hopefully soon.
