Posted this evening on the DayZ Dev Hub

Over the last week the team has been working on finishing the final tasks for 0.49. Included in this work was an extensive code merge from the team in Bratislava, focused on navigation mesh, animal AI, horticulture, and animation system changes. Due to this merge, we've decided to push the 0.49 update out by one week (to allow for a strong QA pass before the update)
0.49 represents a large amount of work that will not be immediately visible on the user side, but allows us to start tracking statistics on player data and item spawns, as well as the mentioned work on animal AI, horticulture, melee system redesigns, and the central loot economy.

As mentioned in last weeks status update, work continues in refining persistent storage and ironing out any potential issues related to protecting user storage, and preventing abuse of the system. DayZ version 0.48 was pushed to stable branch during last weeks maintenance with the goal of addressing global voice abuse, camera collision abuse, global item cleanup, and the deployment of the player storage to limited DayZ dev hosted servers.
As we progress towards the August milestone goal of 0.49 at the end of the month, we will continue to iterate upon the experimental branch with bug fixes and 0.49 intended features.
Additionally worth mentioning is the intended cleanup of the stable hive to coincide with persistent storage and private shards being offered globally across stable branch.

It is our intent once we have addressed the core issues with abuse of item duping, as well as resolved issues with the protection of player storage and opened game server providers rental of private shards, to wipe the stable branch clean.
This will allow us to ensure a clean start on player storage and camps, as well as remove issues such as:

Status Report Week Of August 11th 2014

During this weeks maintenance period, DayZ version 0.48 is being pushed to stable branch. Version 0.48 is primarily focused on addressing issues tied with global voice abuse, camera collision, item cleanup, and the introduction of persistent storage to official (DayZ dev hosted) stable branch servers. Additionally, an interim redesign of melee targeting was introduced in this version as mentioned in last weeks status report by Lead Designer Peter.

Persistent storage across all stable branch servers (including rented servers from GSPs) is targeted for version 0.49 at the end of August. The reasoning behind this tiered deployment of storage is as follows:

Persistent storage is user data. This is valuable, and we need to tread lightly when dealing with so many users data.
Increasing persistent storage server numbers by pushing this to only official hosted servers allows us to stress the system even more so than on experimental branch
This ensures that communities focused around rented servers (clans, fansites, etc) do not risk losing their stored items during this stress test
This also allows game server providers to deploy, and test their methods of protecting, and backing up persistent storage for each server in the event of server failure
That said, version 0.48 also introduces a number of changes to the loot tables, additional content in the way of clothing, animations, items, and weapons. Make sure when testing these new features and content to file your bugs at
