New 2.15, 53660 out. Notes copied from the NMS release log. Also see the discussion about weekend missions. https://www.nomanssky.com/2019/10/beyond-development-update-3/

2.15 Patch Notes
•Added Featured Bases to the teleporter on the Space Anomaly.
•The list of featured bases will change periodically to highlight the best the base building community has to offer.
•The Featured Bases lists allows anyone aboard the Space Anomaly to easily visit and be inspired by other base creators.
•Bases featured in the list are protected to keep them as their architect intended.

•Added a new series of story-based mission to the Nexus.
•These missions are available each weekend and will advance over the course of the coming months.
•These missions are highlighted when viewing the Nexus mission board and reward a large amount of Quicksilver.
•Missions will involve using a portal to travel to a unique destination. This destination is shared across the entire community.

•Fixed an issue that caused galactic generation on PS4 to be out of sync with other platforms. This caused some system to vanish with the arrival of Beyond. These systems have been fully restored. As a result, however, some of the new and erroneously-created systems have been hidden on the galaxy map. These systems can still be visited via teleporter if bases have been established there.
•Fixed a number of issues related to the display of base screenshots in the Space Anomaly Teleporter list.
•Fixed an issue that caused reported bases to linger in the save-game of those who reported them.
•Allowed bases to be reported via the Build Menu, for instances where the base computer is not locatable.
•Added an autosave when handing in a mission on the Nexus.
•Added a community goal progress tracker above the Quicksilver shop in the Space Anomaly.
•Added a notification to clarify that your position is not saved while undertaking a multiplayer mission from the Nexus.
•Added the name of the current galaxy to the Galactic Map.
•Increased the stack size of Living Pearls.
•Added an icon to Kelp Sacs that appears when scanned, similar to sodium and oxygen-rich plants.
•Fixed an issue that caused long load times and poor performance around bases with complex power and wiring setups.
•Fixed an issue that caused tagged markers not to clear when their object was used.
•Fixed an issue that caused glitches in water rendering when entering the atmosphere.
•Fixed an issue where players could get stuck when performing a gesture while seated.
•Fixed an issue where NPC ship pilots would get out of their ship and become stuck within its landing gear.
•Fixed a number of issues that prevented switches being used when visiting other bases.
•Fixed an issue where background missions can update and disrupt a Nexus mission.
•Fixed an issue where Ares had the wrong head.
•Fixed a crash in network replication.
•Fixed a number of rendering crashes.
•Fixed a crash that could occur when viewing discoveries.

EDIT: For the few that might care I found that the standing planter on the Freighter now works, it still has the no power available icon but carbon still grows and the timer shows the same frequency (10 minutes).
