A wealth of brand new content leaves the garage today
Hello GT fans. We’re happy to announce that update 1.12 is now available to download for Gran Turismo 6. This update brings a host of new features and content to your garage and racing experience. Here is just a taste of what’s now available:
Toyota FT1 Vision Gran Turismo
The design concept FT-1 is honed to perfection in this rendition to enhance its features and designs required for pure racing competition. The designers’ original intention in designing the FT-1 was to unabashedly appeal to the die-hard car enthusiasts. This car can be earned by completing just one lap (regardless of lap time) in the new limited time FT-1 Seasonal Event.
Online Quick Match
Quick Match is a simple online racing mode that lets you take part in events with pre-determined regulations. When each individual event is entered, player matching takes place automatically, followed by the race itself. By selecting “Quick Match” from the My Home screen you can now quickly and easily join a race with players around the world....

For some time posts have had Quote+ and Reply links at the bottom right to allow for quoting in replies. Reply would quote the entire post and Quote+ would add the whole post to the multi-quote list (see this post on how to use multi-quote). Whilst these were useful, it was a bit of a pain at times when you only wanted to quote part of a post, as you had to edit it after quoting.
Now we have selective quoting, which is easy to use. Simply highlight the text in a post that you want to quote and you will get two options:

The good news is this worked on mobiles too!

Public events occur within the game world, and typically involve a quick-fire alien invasion that tasks players who happen to be in the area with a timed challenge.
In a post on Bungie.net, the developer outlined a raft of upcoming events set for the coming months in the "shared-world shooter".

"Public Events will erupt from the skies over your favorite destinations with greater frequency. And, Bungie will enter the fray with some bounties of our own for you to claim - if you can."
As for the events, from today, 12th September to 14th September the Salvage mode will be available in the Crucible, Destiny's competitive multiplayer portion. This 3v3 mode is set in small to medium sized maps, and charges teams with recovering relics.
Of particular interest, on 16th September the Vault of Glass level 26 raid becomes available. This six player co-op fight is billed as the hardest PvE encounter so far in Destiny, and rewards raid set gear.
There's more mystery over the Combined Arms event, which will happen at...
