Anyone know when they will release an OPU update?

We'd like to get something out in time for OP2's 20th anniversary, but it could be ready sooner than that.

Based on the very sporadic history of OPU releases, I'm going to guess probably no?

Maybe I should ask when OP2's 20th anniversary is?

It was early-mid September 1997. Strangely I'm having trouble finding the exact date online, and the original readme file's last updated date was in August of that year, but I know for sure it was September since Total Annihilation came out about 2-3 weeks later in late September.

Edit: The latest modified date on the original CD was 8-11-1997. That would be when the game went gold though, so it'd actually had hit the shelves a few weeks later. Still can't dig up the actual date for that.

Edit 2: http://forum.outpost2.net/index.php/topic,3917.0.html According to this, we determined it was September 1 1997 based on a Sierra press release that I decided not to actually link to back then, which I can't seem to find. Tried digging through sierra.com on archive.org a bit.
