Why Isn’t X-Plane 10.20 Release Candidate 1 Official?

A quick status update on X-Plane 10.20:

  • The Portuguese language bug in the installer is fixed - thanks to all of the users who helped test the new installer.
  • X-Plane 10.20 rc1 has two bugs that we have fixes for: a crash when opening radio controlled planes and a crash on 64-bit Mac under heavy load with Lua-based plugins.  We have fixes for both of those; the second has been privately tested for about a week.
  • We have one more new bug report that I am investigating: memory failures with Lua-based plugins and Windows.  This last bug (if it needs fixing) is serious and will kill our release schedule.  If we don't need to fix it, we'll get an RC2 out shortly.  I hope to have a verdict on the bug by tomorrow.

    Good luck with the bugs Ben. Maybe an exterminator is required? I've heard Arnold is back in the acting business and is pretty cheap now!

    Ben, I was looking at some add-on scenery for that 'other simulator' and I thought; yeah it's good, but X-Plane already looks as good as that, and that's without add-ons. What I guess I'm trying to say is; well done on the progress you have made with X-Plane, it really is starting to become a thing of beauty.

    Ben, just a thought on one thing: do you think in the future there could be an option to 'pause' the simulator without having it printed on the screen? Only asking because it would be handy if it wasn't there for screenshots etc...LOL.

    Keep on working mate; no rest for the wicked!
