Sorry for the late reply!
Our next major patch 1.1.0 is due on Wednesday, or Thursday latest. It`ll include large number of fixes to some of the on-going issues, however it will NOT require you to restart your town. So no worries.
And we do apologize for the delay between the patches. Last week we had to look at some very important internal issues - to make sure we are secured financial and in position to continue to support the game for the months/years to come. But we are back to our "friendly" customer support and frequent patching now.
