Presenting… XSquawkBox 1.3.0

As Wade previously mentioned, I’ve been hard at work and we now have a new release of XSquawkBox ready for Windows and MacOS X users.

The new release of XSquawkBox features:

  • support for newer CSL objects
  • improved compatibility with X-Plane 10’s HDR and global shadow rendering features
  • improved manual

You can download the latest client from the download page.

I’ve also received reports from some of our beta testers that the new release does not exhibit the issues they had previously experienced with audio static on Windows.

As for Linux, I’ve been working hard on trying to get the Linux plugin into a usable form – we have everything except sound working reliably, and a surprise breakthrough I made last night unveiled the real source of the problems, and I feel that it’s now safe for me to announce that a closed beta for the Linux plugin will be commencing shortly.

I’d like to thank all of the people who have volunteered for the XSquawkBox 1.3 closed beta – you’ve all been a great help in getting this release out the door.
