X-Plane 11.40r2

Release Candidate 2 is now available for LR customers, and we expect Steam to be available within 24 hours or so.

This is a very small patch with a few minor fixes. At the risk of sounding like a broken record: if you haven’t tried your add on aircraft in 11.40 yet…do it now! The reports have been pretty quiet the last couple weeks, and nobody enjoys a last minute surprise bug.

Release notes here.

X-Plane 11.40 RC 1

Release Candidate 1 is now available for LR customers, and we expect Steam to be available within 24 hours or so.

We are moving towards the end of the beta period, so we’re minimizing the number of code and flight model changes at this point. If you haven’t tried your add on aircraft in 11.40 yet…the time is now!

This update contains mostly tweaks to AI & ATC interaction to improve landings, replay sound improvements, and includes a few new datarefs requested by devs.

X-Plane 11.40b9 & Wrapping Up the Beta

Beta 9 is now available for LR customers, and we expect Steam to be available within 24 hours or so.

This update includes a few more fixes for crashes and issues with third party add ons. The rate of bugs and crashes reported has slow down dramatically in the last week or two, and we don’t have open third party compatibility bugs, so we are getting ready to wrap up the beta.

Developers: expect r1 soon, and make sure you test your add ons.

Release notes here.

Release notes here.

Update: B6 is also live on Steam.

X-Plane 11.40b4

Beta 4 is now available for LR customers, and we expect Steam to be available within 24 hours.

This update has a few more flight model fixes based on user feedback, a GPS error fix, and a fix for scenery decals.

Release notes here.

UPDATE: We received a high volume of crash reports over the weekend with this beta. Because of this, we did not release it on Steam. We hope to have another beta out ASAP to help address the crash frequency.
