Now that I'm back...

I have a few old/dumb questions...

It seems that I missed the 1.0.9 patch.
Ok, but where do I download just the patch? All I can seem find is the full download.

Did the Fxxx bug ever get fixed?

I noticed a thread listing bugs in 1.0.9
I was under the impression that this was to be the last update. Are those bugs there to stay? Or is another patch planned?

you have to re-download Nova.

There is a patch, just look under Essentials. Only the win version requires a complete download.
