A long standing bug has been found in all versions of XSquawkBox with the interpretation of the VATSIM master status list – this bug manifests as XSquawkBox being unable to connect to servers from the serverlist, giving the error “Server <servername> could not be resolved”.
A bugfix will be coming shortly in 1.3.3b4.
At present, because of this bug, there is a 20% chance that XSquawkBox will be unable to find the server list. Restarting X-Plane will allow it to try again.
XSquawkBox 1.3.3 beta 3 has been released and is available on the download page.
Beta 3 adds some stability fixes to prevent XSB from crashing when it is unable to initialise VATSIM voice support.
It also removes the long obsolete transponder control item from the menu. Transponder control via the transponder in your aircraft will continue to work as normal.
This beta expires on 4 June 2017.
