So one of those odd save and reload bugs? Strange, but there are several pita bugs like that.

Unable to remove external ordnance on salvaged aircraft, support/auxiliary units showing up in multiple scenarios, and changing camo selection on allied/enemy forces come to mind.
Think about it.  It's what we do.

This is weird. . . not sure if it's a bug or my machine due to some updates, but while in Repair Bay, and clicking on 'Parts Aqcuisition', my Window's header turns white, as if another window has opened up, but no new window appears.  Hitting Alt-F4 returns me to the Repair Bay screen.  Clicking any of the Available Reports on Command Center has the same problem.  Same if I try Report

I recently had to restore my computer (Win 10) after a crap-tastic 'security update', but everything else seems to work fine. . .  Ran a couple of battles, but have to manually order parts through 'Procurement Information' under the Command Center.  I installed a new, 'clean' extract of 0.48 to a new directory, but same issue.

Anyone else ever have this?

Not sure about the alt-F4, but if it's off screen then alt-spacebar/M/arrow key usually does the trick with windows off-screen.

There's also a chance that it's shrunk down to minimum size which I've seen with a few dialogs - somehow they get pushed down to little more than the minimize/close boxes at the top-right, small enough to miss easily.  Once found it needs to be dragged out to it's proper size.

I'm trying that, but no luck. . . it's as if the windows simply don't exist on my desktop.  Weeeeird. . .  :o

So, I decided to un-install Java Runtime 8 and re-install it.  Then re-downloaded 0.48 using Hammer's link above in the OP.  All funtionality seems to be restored, but I now have to restore my personnel roster.  I have no idea what happened, nor what I did to fix it, other than the reinstallations . . .

Is there going to be a new stable release sometime? The current one is a year and a half old, and my luck is uneven with development releases.

I know .49 was a venture into Java11 so they are working with a new set up. They have also talked about continuing to move forward with Java17 as well.

We just got a new dev release with a big new feature, so they’ll probably want to stabilize and perfect the AS conversion before the next dev release at least.

The MM discord is fairly active and things are being worked on. .46 to .48 was a year and half.]

I wouldn’t count on soon, but more is always coming from these folks.

Stable 0.50.0 Status Update
We are still working on the development portion of the current dev cycle. We've been able to implement a new version of Gradle (our build language) starting with this release (0.49.11) we've added support for Java 17. This will require more testing and we encourage players to use the programs with Java 17, Java 11 at this time remains our recommened choice. We are still working on the connection stability issues. Until we resolve these issues and confirm Java 17 stability we can't move ahead with a new Stable, and we have no ETA for this. With a milestone of 0.50.0 we need to make sure we get it right.

We are still a good ways off from a new Stable (see comments above). We have numerous under the hood changes still in progress. If you're willing to move to Java 11 or running Java 17 you can run Dev releases separate from the Stable.

I can say that the following Dev releases have had very few issues.

0.49.7 will require Java 11, and in hindsight could have been a Stable release
0.49.10 will require Java 11 ONLY
0.49.11 will require Java 11 or 17

If I was going to Recommend an entry point for a Dev release that you could stay on for a while it would be 0.49.7, but 0.49.11 is also looking really good.
