Hi to everyone who both developing and playing awesome FlightGear.

After watched the source code, that seems OpenGL 1.1, no above that until yet.
So to be sure: Which number version of OpenGL does the Flightgear 2017.2.1 does using? Else the last version 2018.3.2?

Regard from Øyvind Hagen.

"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Thank you. I am wondering if performance will be much better if you are using OpenGL above 4.X rendering mode with exactly same code of the rest of Source code?

I have been take note of all OpenGL functions which match Version to use in my own business invention hardware made from occasionally accidents.
I have printed onto paper 3Dfx its invention code-named 'SST-96', trying to making clone by Wood, magnet, light, and glass in slow speed to observe if logic successor.
But I do not want to tell too much.
