FlightGear 1.0.0-r152 has been released - with full and update packages

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Here comes another update for FlightGear Mac OS X - 1.0.0-r152. This release improves the quality especially on Tiger, as well as stability, usability and new features for all Tiger/Leopard capable Macs. It is recommended for all users to update to r152. Probably the biggest reason for you to use this release can be the useful symbolic link to FlightGear's data folder. the link is automatically made at $HOME/Documents/1.0.0 folder when launched. Now you don't get lost in finding Aircraft or Scenery folder. You can probably find some useful documents that you've never seen! Moreover, the screen shots taken by pressing 'F3' (or Option-F3 or Fn-Option-F3) will be copied to $HOME/Documents/1.0.0/ScreenShots automatically when fgfs exits. You can use ImageMagick or Gimp to convert ppm images to some other image file format.

The 1.0.0-r152 full package and the GUI updater are available from the Downloads page, like always.

The changes since r151 includes:

  • Fixed the problems on Tiger
    • text fields are grayed-out
    • [...]

What I like the most in this release is that you can search all the airports and installed aircraft using GUI launcher. Aircraft search can let you find yasim aircraft only, or beta versions only by typing such keyword to the search box. You can also open Positions or Aircraft tab by clicking the gear buttons at the right end of airport/aircraft text field on the top pane of GUI launcher.

The complete changes in r151 GUI launcher package since r150 are:
