You can play either first or second edition by selecting the one you prefer in the settings when creating a table.
So if I choose first edition, can I have the Native Americans back?
Correct, first edition has Native Americans and second edition has outlaws instead.

I am enjoying the game so far, but don't like the way the interface adjusts when you enlarge the window. The main board stays centered, with a bunch of empty space on the right hand side, and the player board on the left continues to cover the game board. And the part showing your hand at the bottom stays below the main board as well and you have to scroll down to be able to see the board at the same time.

Thanks a lot for this! Not every day you get a BGG Top10 game out on BGA! *former Top10 as of now, but who cares
Is there chance for solo mode to be added at some point: either the official one from the 2nd edition or e.g. Garth by Steve Schlepphorst?

It's great to have this game in BGA, but I've been having lots of trouble with it. We started asynchronous play with a friend, both of us with premium accounts, but each time we close de browser, the match vanishes. It has happend three times in the last two days already (and it doesn't appear in the notifications as finished). I have no idea what might be wrong here.

My guess would be that you launched a "realtime" training mode game (instead of "turn based" training mode).
Realtime games are closed after 4 hours without a move.
If you make sure to select "turn based" before starting the game, it should be fine.
