Previous to v1.1.4, ships damaged in combat would be instantly healed at the end of combat. In v1.1.4, ships now retain their damage even after combat ends. To heal your ships, you need to send them to a friendly system with a starbase. Starbases will heal your ships at a rate specific to the level of the starbase.

One of several changes made to spying, contact rating is a new mechanic which affects how likely it is your offensive spies will succeed. The more colonies you have within contact range of the other empire’s colonies, the higher your contact rating will be. The higher your contact rating, the more likely it is your spies will succeed.
