 Introduction
 
 Thank you for playing Story of a Lost Sky.
 
-We're pleased to announce the latest release of Story of a Lost Sky: version 0.8.0.
+We're pleased to announce the latest release of Story of a Lost Sky: version 0.9.0.
 
-This version is primarily a mechanics update. We've completely overhauled the traits system so that every unit now has
-two branches of traits to choose from. Want to make Marisa a nimble warrior, dashing across the map?
-Sure! How about making her a long range force of destruction? You can do that too! The goal of the traits system is to
-increase the depth of the choices that players can make and give them more viable strategies to choose from. We also
-have introduced new Trait Actions that can be performed like making all units around Chen dizzy and having Alice
-summon her dolls as helpers.
+Three major improvements are present in this version:
 
-On the content side, major changes have been made to Chapter 2 Stage 3. We designed this mission now to have more
-pressure, so the player is encouraged to move downward. Also, we added some new mechanics to the Chapter 2 Stage 5
-boss battle, but that'll be a surprise. Finally, new sprite work is in from Keyk, environmental tiles from Nazerine,
-and portraits have been added by Jamuko and Honya.
-
-Our main goals for the next version are to polish up the user interface, tweak a few of the battle mechanics further,
-and finally get started on Chapter 4. We are hoping to have the main story finished by the end of the year with an
-intermediate release tentatively planned for the summer.
+- A completely overhauled user interface covering most every menu in the game.
+- A completely new world map interface thanks to new art from almondette
+- Evasion, spell relationships, and terrain defense have been simplified. Each character has now a Talent, and any
+spells of that type will receive a hit-rate bonus. For spell relationships, only damage and critical hit rate are affected.
 
 Thank you for your continued support and we'd be happy to hear what you think of our project.

 Q3 - When is the final release date?
 We are shooting for finishing the main story this year.
 
 Q4 - Are old save files compatible with this release?
-Due to the fundamental changes in the game mechanics and internal unit data, save files from old versions are not
-compatible.
+Yes, with a few caveats: Save state data is preserved, though the player's current position on the world map is reset to the Netherworld.
+If any traits are present that have been tweaked, they will be updated to the latest version.
 
 Q5 - I have a bug report or suggestion for improvement. How do I report it?
 We have an issue tracker hosted on bitbucket:
 Please include any information about what you were doing as well as any errors. If you are using the Windows version,
 a crash should leave an error message in srpg.exe.log.
 
+Q6 - Note for users on Fedora Linux. There is an issue with Pygame and Linux Audio where an "Unrecognized Music Format" error may be encountered. Please see:
+https://bitbucket.org/featheredmelody/lost-sky-project-public/issue/85/pygameerror-unrecognized-music-format#comment-4137491
