So, some old bugs that I'm pretty sure had appeared and then disappeared are in the game again... of course, I might be mistaken about that, but these bugs are in the latest beta 5 patch, at least.
1) Ship Designer: Stray line around rotation dials.
2) Ship Designer: Both design elements and functional components are visible in the designer. In the example below, the top left shows I'm in Design Mode, which is also shown by the first 7 components in the component tray on the bottom of the screen--however, in the screen capture, I was hovering my cursor over the constructor module, and to the right of that are the life support module and engine. The item the farthest to the right is another design component (Support 1; not the functional life support component). Having functional components and cosmetic elements mixed together is confusing, and I don't think this is by design.
3) Shipyard/Tech: Ships become available with more max mass than is researched. In the example below, my constructor has 94/60 capacity...
4) Starting Race Description: Text is repositioned to the top-left of the screen if too long. In the example below, I simply duplicated the Krynn's Strengths and Weaknesses text in a custom faction.
