I’m happy to announce that after some incredibly lengthy delays due to the VATSIM NDA process, two new developers have come onboard and started work on XSquawkBox.
Chris Collins & Ivan Stankovic will be working together on future versions of XSquawkBox.
Chris has worked hard on a new release and it’s ready to go for Mac & Windows. I know many of you are waiting on a 64-bit release of the Linux client, and Chris has been working hard to try to make it happen. However, the problem is in order to do a 64-bit Linux client, the Linux audio code is going to have to be rewritten. Progress is being made, but it is not yet complete.
I’ll let Chris follow up here with details on the new release availability & specifics on the Linux issues and their progress, since he’s the one that has done the work and deserves the credit.
