      Laminar Research has released X-Plane 10.11 RC-2. A list of changes are as follows:

      Cessna windshield does not disappear when C172 is used as an AI plane.
      Fixed typo in joystick config screen.
      Fixed joystick bugs with various hardware.
      Changed default gamma for Windows to be 2.2 - the default of 2.5 was just wrong.
      Fixed occasional crash due in weather initialization.
      Fixed strobe light effect in clouds.
      Fixed scrolling of hail marks on windscreen in 2-d panel.
      Fixed joystick subsystem to work around ControllerMate issues on Mac.
      sRGB disabled for ATI Catalyst 12-10 drivers - it works in some cases but washes out the UI with HDR on.
      Put up error alert when x-Plane runs with Gallium drivers on Linux - we only support the proprietary ATI and NVidia drivers on Linux.
      Disabled HDR when the GPU can't support it _even_ if prefs have HDR enabled.
      Bumped version on situation format - the 10.05r1 situation format does not work with 10.10 and 10.11; this version change stops the files from being loaded in a corrupt manner.

      SSG Releases EMB-170

      By X-Pilot, in Aircraft,

      Super Critical Simulations Group has released their rendition of the EMB-170. This aircraft is primarily used in the airline industry as a regional jet, though has a great range to allow for longer flights.
      The project is considered more of a "lite" product where much of the simulation is default X-Plane systems, but most of it has been modified as much as possible to match that of the real EMB-170.
      You may find more information or purchase this product at the X-Plane.org Store.

      ATI WINDOWS USERS: X-Plane 10.10 is affected by a driver bug (still present in catalyst 12-8 drivers) that can affect runway lights and HDR mode. To work around the problem, run from the DOS prompt like this:
      X-Plane.exe --no_srgb

      We are working with ATI and will come up with something more permanent before we finalize 10.10.
      Aircraft Changes
      Default Aircraft startup times drastically improved! Sometimes on piston engines, you may even need to crack the throttle to get the aircraft to start...just like real aircraft!

      The starter has been changed quite a bit; airplanes from v9 and 10.05 should now start as expected. See this post for details.

      Bug Fixes
      METARs with variable winds no longer create wind-shear/turbulence for low wind speed conditions
      Slung Loads are no longer defaulted ON...this was preventing the B-52 from flying properly!
      Mouse wheel scrolling now works in the Aircraft Livery panel
      Weapons drawn correctly in Plane-Maker
      Plane-Maker can import .inst instrument files.
      Light billboard color-space fixed; the runway lights should be quite a bit more visible now.
      Fixed misaligned roads.
      Fixed road bridges crashing into each other.
      Improved ramps going into road junctions slightly.
      Fixed P-180 panel going black when P-180 is used as an AI plane or HDR is turned on and off.
      Fixed missing landing light in 2-d cockpits and forward views.
      Jets will hot-start if __N2__ is below indicated value in Plane-Maker. Plane-Maker used to use N1 for jets, which was difficult to work with.
