X-Plane 11.50 quietly went final yesterday. Very quietly.
We’re trying something new with this release: a phased roll-out. Here’s how it works:
- 11.50 is final – if you run the installer and request updates, you’ll get 11.50, regardless of whether you check ‘get betas’.
- Only some users are being auto-notified of the update.
- Over the next few days, we’ll slowly crank up the number of auto-notifications until it is everyone.
- Steam users: you still have to opt into the beta – we’ll mark the Steam 11.50 version as final probably tomorrow.
We are trying the phased roll-out to make sure support doesn’t get overwhelmed; some add-ons need to be updated for 11.50 compatibility, and we didn’t want Thomson and company to go down the tubes helping users get their add-ons updated.
