I just built a release candidate of WorldEditor 1.2.1r2; if you work on airports, please try it and post a WED bug if something is really borked.

There are a few minor bug fixes, some usability tweaks, and two major ones:

  • The export format for sending zip files to Robin is modified to make things easier in the collection process.  For this reason, we’d like everyone submitting airports to go to WED 1.2.1.
  • The library view now hides the resources marked private or deprecated in X-Plane 10.25 or earlier.  So WED 1.2.1 and X-Plane 10.25 provide a much less cluttered library view.  (WED 1.3 will have a nice improvement to filtering as well.)

For more details on what changed, all commits to WED 121 are visible here.  (The commit notes are listed, and the yellow tags tell you the version where we then re-shipped the code.)

We are discussing internally how to handle a more permanent airport submission tracking system.  My current thinking is that eventually we’ll build file transfer directly into WED – that is, you’ll say “share this airport” and WED will call up our servers directly and send the airport; no zip files and email.  But that’s for the future.

X-Plane 10.25b2 should be “real soon” I think – I’m just waiting on one more change to cut the new beta.
