Looking forward to the changes.

Anyway you said in chat you want more ship variety in different zone for different things. That is easily done with adding "tags" to the class ships.

Example: Rin may have weakness to Nisus class and said class may be doing more damage to them. How do you adjust things is up to you but if you want different ships for different activity in-game that may be the solution. You will still be able to hunt Rins with Arachne or other class ships but Nisus will be more enjoyable and feel natural. Just a thought.

Tabbing between Username and Password already seems to work. The problem atm is that if you hit enter after typing them in it won't login. You have to manually click Log In.

As I wrote - really welcome changes and fixes. 
I summarised some of my notes that were not addressed - so you can have them on your backlog or something:

In addition to the balancing effort taking place right now, towards the steam launch I think we should think a bit more about new players experience - they don't know diaspora and might have a hard time:
- Consider adding some help/tutoring - there needs to be a lot of explanations along the way either in game or in the site. Tooltips, popups with instructions, new comers walkthrough etc..
Quests need to be more rewarding
-- would also appreciate some in game tooltips/infos about the guild upgrades, not all of them are straight forward
As said many times, going through the first stages can't be about the farming - it needs to be about learning the game mechanics.

Searching players:
LRU/MRU - Its helpful to cycle through recent searches, either with keyboard arrows or something else..
hovering with the mouse on the auto complete messes up the typing - you constantly have to move the cursor away in order to type, it drives me nuts
after pressing enter you cant delete and search again - the textbox loses focus so you have to click the mouse on the text box and reslect 


Will we ever display the number of launched players in the zone?


Chat - 
I saw some posts mention this as well - The floating popup is a nice concept but its not working out for me. It takes too much space from the node view, abstracting ships or menu items (for instance sell all cargo). I don't have a good idea how to fix it but saw one good suggestion on the forums (with that screenshot and annotations). 

Hud - 
guns view on the HUD on the bottom left doesnt seem to be very helpful, esp when you got >2 guns right? you have to click through all your 9-12 guns.... maybe a more compact view to show all like in pDiaspora?

can you please add a "remaining time" label there that counts down? I dont want to calculate how much is 31% left of 16 hours
