      Laminar Research has just released Beta 6 for X-Plane 10.03!
      Start up those updaters and get the ball rollin'!
      A list of changes are as follows:

      ATC:

      Fixed bug preventing lowercase routings from working
      Fixed numerous crashes in the ATC system.
      Fixed bug causing AI planes to suddenly taxi through a hold short line wildly.
      Fixed bug causing the view to change while using the arrows to navigate ATC menus.
      Adjusted timers to let users communicate with ATC more easily.
      Adjusted "off course" tolerances to make it less annoying.
      Improved automatic layout generation at KTCM (and hopefully other airports that are long and thin)

      Aircraft:

      CRJ and other aicraft cockpits should work at night in HDR mode on OS X Lion.
      Sim is more tolerant of missing textures - the rules now match v9 for OBJs.
      Slight improvement to braking model to aid in erroneous aircraft drifting.
      Baron 58: Added cockpit night lighting. Use the four lighting knobs under the copilot yoke to adjust.
      F4 Phantom: Adjusted the flight model for better in-flight handling and more reasonable manners on approach and landing.
      Fixed seg fault in weight/weapons window.

      Rendering:

      Fixed cut-off global lights on ATI hardware.

      Khamsin & Arno are making great movement on their next DHC-1 "Chipmunk" project!
      Arno states, "While I'm coding the Chipmunk to have it has realistic as it gets (I'm mimicing real life failures, one by one...), khamsin is now texturing the bird. The result, even at this very early stage, is... well... I let you find the right words..."
      Newer screenshots and a preliminary texture screenshot has been posted to the DHC-1 "Chipmunk" thread on the forums.
      Great work, guys!
