More questions.

Do I need to keep Meanace class ship or can I safely replace it with better transport ship like for example Thunderhorse. Example switch Metallo to Thunderhorse.

No you don't need to keep the menace ship around, heck you don't even really need to build it in the first place.  I generally ship it off to my B-team, or C-team bases since it's still a nice transport for a lot of missions once I have better transports available for my A-team.

After this update, can you still get sandbags from other sources?

So far as i know you could only make them yourself, therefore you would have had to have unlocked them prior to this most recent update.

Love this mod! I'm upgrading from .99J2. Will there be a problem resuming my saved game in the new version, .99J8? To give you an idea of where I was in the game when I saved it, I was in the middle of researching Full Plate Mail.

Where can I get Reticulan Elder?

Also how can I trigger faction to build a base? I had 3 bases but all of them were Academy and I need a trader and church base for their highest members. I know I can kidnap them, but the cost is big.

You can't trigger them into building bases.

You can buy the reticulan elder, not sure if you need mercs or Saya, or you need to follow a probe to a reticulan HQ (not the actual name, but it should be obvious).

In 0.99J8 still the "bring down the watchtower" mission still spawns in a leke/swamp zone; may taht not being carried out for the next relases? Done not make sense a tower in such terrains :)

I've researched Mutant Self Defense Force. It says that Pogroms should stop but on next month I still have mutant pogrom. Should that happen?

It doesn't disable "freelance" Pogroms.

Pogroms that don't give negative score if you ignore them.

So now Megapol units
Spoiler:
spawn with plasma weapons?
I was going nonchalantly to try to capture some Wolfmen for slaving, when they fired at me. Luckly they missed and my gal was with an Assault Marine Armor.
I like the challenge and the new loot.

Not entirely true.  Ignoring a freelance pogrom still has an infamy penalty, but it's far less severe than ignoring a mandatory pogrom.

Spoilers for exact score values (from the last time I checked the rulesets which was back in 0.99J4):
Spoiler:
ignoring freelance pogrom = -100 infamy
ignoring mandatory pogrom = -1000 infamy
