About the item info window...

To use this new window you have 2 ways to open it.

1. Type "/item NUM" to open the window for a given ID (NUM = item id). You can also just use "/i".
2. ALT+Click on an item to open the info window for the clicked item. This basically works EVERYWHERE, including shop window (ALT+Click the item name), Examine window (Including ship hull & drive image), your current ship gear slots and items laying on ground. Simply said everywhere you see an item, you can ALT+Click it. If you found a spot where it doesnt work, just report it and i will fix it smile.
