Server … could not be resolved

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.
