The June 2018 software update comes with two new features:

(a) Players that miss four turns in a row are now automatically removed from the game. Their slot becomes open for occupation by a different player (or the same player again). Please look closely for anomalies during the next turns.

The automatic kick does not differ from a manual admin kick. There is no special penalty, but dropped players will get the usual reliability penalty if the slot is not taken by a replacement after three turns.

(b) A game's "Browse Files" link will now not only allow you to access your current result, but also your turn file and previous results/turns.

This feature will form the basis for a future history browser in PCC2ng, and has been made possible by the storage system upgrade in April.
