I am having trouble figuring out how to go about installing fgpanel.

I plan to run my main screen on linux, and have fgpanel on a surface tablet with touch screen running windows.

So far I could not find any binary for windows. The wiki takes me to a 404
and going to jenkins i still can't find it. even the build is not there anymore.

I did build everything on the main linux box, and was planning to just move it to a linux virtualbox and run fgpanel from there. It almost worked out, but then i realized i build everything on my very odd system and was trying to run it on ubuntu 18.06 image, which is behind on a few library (mainly glew) and it turned out to be too much of a pain to update. i tried to install the full flightgear package on the VM, but it doesn't have fgpanel (thought it have even the man pages for it!) ... 4.deb.html

Is fgpanel replaced with something else? if not where can i find windows or ubuntu binaries? thank you!
