November 25 - release of version 0.1.4
Public Beta 0.1.4 was released today. Changes in this version:

- Display strobes/beacon/navlight/landing light only if the other pilot has turned them on
- Remember radio coupling setting
- Check for updates on connection
- All strobe and beacon lights flash at the same time, and with the same speed
- Different blink intervals for different aircraft types (beacon + strobes)
- Multiplayer movement is not steady

- TCAS should now show traffic 30000ft below or above you

 

September 2005

Planned features for the next version:

- Detailed light controls, for each individual aircraft. See only the lights on other aircraft if they are actually turned on, so if a pilot forgets to turn on his strobes, you won't see them!


- Beacon and strobelights will flash at different intervals, depending on the type of aircraft: the strobes of an Airbus are different from the strobes of a C172 or a Boeing
- Lights will flash at different times, you won't have all aircraft lights blinking at the same time any more
