Lol, thank you that really cleared things up for me
Feel free to discuss here about news on our blog
No no no, it's misleding. There's 65 issues that need to be done for 1.0, but we fixed 136 issues in the recently released version alone. If a 1.0 issue gets tackled by someone, it gets moved to the version currently worked on (I'm 90% sure about this statement), so the % on 1.0 progress will practically not grow (6% is deduced from partially completed issues, but once the issue is fixed completely, it gets moved from there to the current version). There should, however, be less and less 1.0 issues until one day we get to 0. Of course new issues may theoretically be added to 1.0 or some may split into multiple smaller ones, but I think it won't happen very often as we're only discovering very minor problems now that get added to the current version being worked on.
From the video (correct me if I'm wrong), it seems like you cannot speak to NPCs underwater anymore, no matter what?Actors no longer try to speak underwater (#3851)
If so, I used that vanilla "bug" in a mod of mine (Desert Region 2, in fact) and as a precautionary measure, I made a compatibility patch. Because there is a main quest where you need to speak to a drowning NPC to progress and if that bug/feature has been disabled, you would not be able to progress.
But there may be more mods out there which also require you to speak to underwater NPCs or creatures, so that may be a cause for concern.
