This version normalizes sRGB use across the entire app. A few notes:
- sRGB is only on during plugins, the 2-d panel, and buttons background drawing (to get the alpha levels right).
- Prop discs are now changed from wrong to right gamma blending – this is a breaking change for artists.
- Use the fog model to make interior views not look WAY brighter than the outside world at dusk.
- Introduced PBR to deferred spill lights & fixed fog culling bugs on billboards.
- Always set GNS unit into ENR or TERM navigation when the flight plan is manipulated through the XPLMNavigation API. This ensures the unit is not stuck in approach mode, possibly following a completely different flight plan that can neither be seen nor manipulated by the XPLM API.
- Treat IAF with holdings just like IAFs with procedure turns.
- Plane Maker provides all six e-sys buses to all instrument types.
