it0uchpods Developement Status Update Mid-2017

Postby Octal450 » Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:26 pm

Hi all, I'd like to make a short update to advise the community what is going on, and what the future of our Aircraft Dev Team is.

First, thanks all for your support over the last years, I've had some tough times and the community remained respectful, even when I acted out of line -- (sorry!) :oops:

So, here is the lot:

Current Aircraft
These aircraft WILL continue to get autopilot updates, bugfixes, feature updates, improvements, and more. These are in current development.

* A320Family
- A3XX Dev Team:
--- Joshua Davidson (it0uchpods)
--- Jonathan Redpath (legoboyvdlp)
--- J Maverick 16
--- Charlie Schwehm (Wecsje)

* Future A3XX Aircraft
- A3XX Dev Team:
--- Joshua Davidson (it0uchpods)
--- Jonathan Redpath (legoboyvdlp)
--- J Maverick 16
--- Charlie Schwehm (Wecsje)

* 737-800
- With Gabriel Hernandez (YV3399/GabrielYV)

* MD-10
- With:
--- David Waggoner (DrDavid/Skyboat)
--- J Maverick 16

* KC-137R
- With J Maverick 16

* FGNavigator1
- With Gerhard Kick (gkick)

* 727-200

Legacy Aircraft
These aircraft are considered in extended support:
These aircraft WILL continue to get autopilot updates, and bugfixes, but no more feature updates.
* 717
* KingAir-350
* MD-11
* MD-88
* MD-90

These aircraft are considered obsolete:
These aircraft WILL NOT continue to get autopilot updates, bugfixes, or feature updates.
* A340-200
* A340-313X
* A340-600HGW
* A340-600VIP
* A350XWB

Any aircraft not mentioned are in an undetermined state at the moment.

IT-AUTOFLIGHT will reach V3.0.0 soon, and IT-AUTOFLIGHT:GA will reach V1.0.0 soon.
Both autopilots will continue to receive updates, but at a slower rate.

Most of my time/effort goes to the A3XX Project, trying to build a study level A3XX :D

Hope this clears up the future!

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Please ask!

Kind Regards,
Josh

You almost scared me a bit there. At first I thought that IRL (real life) had come between you and your work in/for the community. :? :oops:

Even though I am not all that interested in airliners per see myself, I really enjoy watching the development (and the development of the developers ;) ). The great thing with FlightGear is that there are so many disciplines one can learn more about: FDMs, graphic design, aerodynamics, 3D modelling, FBW systems, programming, GIS and so much more.

tl;dr: I really enjoy seeing how both aircraft and people progress, and you have a part in that. :D

@JohanG
Luckily o have a lot of free time for development these days :D. Simply be avoiding stupid high school parties etc, and focusing on my passion - flying and programming. But college will slow me down for sure :D

Thanks for your kind words.

Kind Regards,
Josh
