The 1.3.3 build is currently in progress and once final packaging and validity checks are done, I’ll be releasing it to the site.
XSquawkBox 1.3.3 beta 4 has been released and is available on the download page. All XSquawkBox users are advised to upgrade.
This beta will expire 29 June 2017.
This release fixes another long-standing bug in the server list parsing code which has been responsible for causing intermittent failures in XSquawkBox’s ability to connect to the network.
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.
