I only know how the capsule behaved during the test - it was one motor, because two motors would have resulted in a wildly tumbling capsule on uneven shutdown.

This picture of the capsule shows one large opening in the center (assumed to be the abort motor), with four smaller opening (assumed to be the landing rockets).

Could the grey shapes just below the the ringfin seen in the second pic, be "blow-outs" ?

In the assembly picture, the lower deck of the capsule is still missing (It ends at the top of the "BLUE ORIGIN" text in the second image), so the opening is more likely the place where the abort motor case sits, it has about the right size for a 600 kNs motor. Possible that the smaller openings are the places where the landing motors are installed or other connections into the pressure vessel.

The gray shapes below the ring fin are just access panels needed during assembly and integration.

Just getting slowly back into it after a lengthy week of planning the next four versions of our server software.

Status: Common guidance class done, now I just need to get the special code for capsule and propulsion module into each. Idea is that both vehicle make use of common guidance algorithms as often as possible, so an abort with the capsule will be only little different from launching the PM.

I hope getting a landing test scenario done when Blue Origin does its flight.

Sure does. The Assembly building also has a crane. I hope to be adding other vehicles as well.

Those are all vehicles that could also be nice outside Corn Ranch... maybe you should make a "Vehicle Pack" with those.
