I just discovered that M-Saunders told the Frontier forums that Pioneer (effectively a free Frontier: Elite 2 tribute) will be on the next cover disk.
This is fantastic news! I'm on the dev team for the Pioneer project, as well as being one of the guys running Tyneside Linux User Group (which is also getting featured in the magazine).
Pioneer is here: http://pioneerspacesim.net/
The game is in the alpha stages, but progress is very, very rapid. Alpha 14 is the version that'll be on the cover disk; a new Alpha build is released every month, and there are nightly development builds for the very enthusiastic.
Please, do try it out. We're all extremely proud of our work, and we're dead excited that it's going to get some extra exposure!
