      Laminar Research has released version 10.20 Beta 6 today. While the changes are significant, this should also serve caution that 64-bit is still very new and things may and will break during the process towards final. A list of the changes in this update are as follows:
      Usability:
      Livery is saved as a preference - when you reopen a plane if there is no option to pick a livery, the last one you used is opened.
      New button in Open Aircraft dialog box to just change the livery.

      Plugins:
      Fix for LuaJIT compatibility on 64-bit Mac integrated - see here. Plugin authors working on 64-bit Mac plugins should be able to continue with development without any special test builds.
      libpng, libcurl, and libfreetype2 symbols have been stripped out of the Mac and Linux versions. Please test your 32-bit Mac/Linux plugin; if it will not load, please report this ASAP! (The problem might be with your makefile.)
      Fixed system_window dataref. This should fix the 32-bit TrackIR plugins.

      Airplanes:
      Prop heat and inlet heat expanded to up to 8 engines, with new datarefs. This should not affect existing airplanes, but please recheck your icing switches.
      Custom prop disc cross-fades fixed. If you use the prop disc override please confirm that your add-on works!
      Eagle claw landing gear dataref added.
      Fixed RGB light field in Plane-Maker exterior lights screen.
      Fixed IAS indicator showing airspeed when a plane is flying backward or stationary in a tailwind.

      Scenery:
      Fixed incorrect library paths in autogen - this should fix a bunch of custom scenery packs not loading.
      More new terrain textures from Albert.
      Fixed texturing of type 1 repeating fence faces. If your facades still have texturing problems but used to work, please file a bug ASAP!
      Helipads like NK39 don't float in the air when sloped runways are turned off.

      Bug Fixes:
      Fix for some Intel HD GPUs causing the sim to quit with an error.
      Fixed crash on Mac with Chinese input methods.
      Fixed hang when filing certain ATC flight plans.
      Bottom of cloud puffs should be closer to assigned bases.
      New commands for directional gyros.
      AI planes keep igniters on to avoid flame-outs.

      X-Plane 10 New Zealand Pro is a complete replacement scenery package for New Zealand (North and South island). It is a combination of two parts.
      An extremely high resolution base mesh (even a bit higher than the other HD Scenery Mesh regions) with updated (and more detailed) landclass data (riverbeds, mines and morains are entirely new – compared to default Global Scenery), very detailed road / railroad/ powerline vector, and highly accurate water data (you should find most of the relevant rivers / streams, tiny lakes, and more detailed coastlines).


      An additional overlay scenery, which adds treelines (this time they are “real”, derived from GIS data) and tons of objects (mostly houses, but there are also barns, churches, substations, schools, hospitals, shelters – outside the area, which are filled in by XP10 autogen).

      This scenery is for X-Plane 10 only, and ideally, you should have X-Plane 10.20 Beta 5 or above (as it brings some art assets – textures – in its default set, which NZ Pro uses). But don’t worry, if you have an earlier version of XP10, there is a “workaround” for you on the download page. Best of all this scenery is donationware, you can freely download and use it, and if you like, you might donate for it (and even then, you decide what its worth for you). To learn more visit the X-Plane 10 New Zealand Pro Homepage.

      X-Aviation has announced that Gizmo and SASL incompatibility issues have been resolved!
      The loud, horrible screeching sound is no more! For a long time now many customers have resorted to selecting one plug-in over the other or keeping separate X-Plane installs in order to alleviate conflicts between Gizmo and SASL.
      A new blog post outlines the fixes and how you can get your hands on them to have a hassle free simming experience with your Gizmo and SASL driven aircraft!
      Read about it here!
