On top of fixing issues with vehicles and vehicle modifications disappearing, patch 1.05 for GTA Online also adds new measures to protect player's characters and cash from disappearing if there are cloud or network problems with the game.
As for the promised GTA$ Stimulus Package, the first $250,000 will be deposited in the next couple of days according to Rockstar Games. The money will be distributed throughout the course of an entire day so don't be surprised to hear if some people have it but others don't.
If the first "stimulus" payment goes through successfully, the second payment should be sent out over the next couple of weeks.
This patch should also herald the release of the first free DLC for GTA Online, the Beach Bum Pack, which is due out the first part of November.
