Rotate the World is still there, by design
Your aim is now limited to inside the first aim circle
You can now scroll through scores after your Friendly Round is done
Your unique "Player ID" will appear on your profile in case some specific individual troubleshooting is required
Putting mechanics will change a bit. You will now need to pull the disc back before you can do your forward putt motion.
The current Beta (it's version .806 for sake of reference) does not have the new Courses on it. I don't know when those will appear.
I'm sure there are things that will change between now and when the Beta rolls into production. So, if you have questions or want my initial impressions on things, do realize things not only might, but should, change.
is this update out right now or forthcoming?

Rather than re-throw I hit "go to lie" and it put me on top of a peak above the teepad. Easily the craziest thing I've seen so far.

Sounds like the developer isn't really active on it either, although with the recent events maybe he will get back to work on more features?

Hey there M19HTYERIC ! Any suggestions on the best way to unlock Recoil or other HS driver? Thanks!
I have a couple of recoils and don't have 3 stars on Grizzly or the Crows Nest yet. Multiplayer is the way. I got 3 stars on all but those 2 first, then started playing multiplayer and feel like the Recoil came sort of quickly. I don't know, I may have played more rounds than I think.

Facebook post says they are in Beta. They don't even have a timeline for the update yet.

It’s a way to putt when there is a tree directly blocking you. I’ve never completely mastered it, but the there is a tutorial with video in the FAQ on the FB page

Keep playing and leveling up - eventually the good discs will come as an available choice. The earliest you can get a Recoil is Level 10, the earliest you can get a Ballista is Level 20.

You do get some sort of a Recoil for 3-starring Grizzly Gulch. By the time they introduced that course, I had already been playing for a while and had better drivers. To be honest, getting 3 stars on that course with nothing longer than a Musket requires luck, amazing skill, and/or favorable winds.

If you’re playing the Open (where you can repeat the round with the same holes and wind), you can switch out to a specialty disc when needed

Accurate/Glide or Accurate/Sticky Pure - all top players have one or the other (probably 2/3 prefer the glide)
Accurate/Wind Break Fuse - see below
Accurate/Wind Break Explorer - that particular Fuse and Explorer are both in every top player’s bag
Accurate/Extra Glide or Accurate/Wind Break Musket
The last two that are in every top player’s bag you have to play for a while to get (playing multiplayer is the fastest way to level up):
Light/Big Skip Ballista and Light/Extra Glide Ballista - these two make almost all of the Par fours reachable with the right wind
I'm on Level 48 and the only one of these I've been offered is the Accurate/Extra Glide Pure. Still I've ended up pretty similar:

Pure - Heavy/Accurate
Fuse - Accurate
Explorer - Wind Break
Musket - Extra Glide
Recoil - Wind Break/Extra Glide
Ballista - Extra Glide/Big Skip

It's hard to imagine not having the Recoil ITB. It's pretty useful.

If I could add a 7th disc permanently, there’s little doubt the Recoil would be it. In the bag of six though, it’s either that or the Musket so the Musket likely stays

You can get the Wind/Accurate Fuse by getting 2 or 3 stars on one of the courses (I forget which one)
