Flightgear Nightly

Postby Delta5142 » Fri Feb 05, 2021 6:04 pm

Hi all,
What's the difference between the Flightgear Nightly build and the main Flightgear package?
To most people, the sky is the limit, but to those who love aviation, the sky is home...

the nightly is an unstable development version with all the updates until this date, but because it is a development version some things may be broken or not yet fully ready.
the main package is a stable version that was beta-tested, and therefore had the bugs tracked and (mostly) fixed, but lacks the latest additions

Note that a lot of people also use the development version almost on a daily basis. So while something might get broken it is usually for a short period.

So the FlightGear package is mainly targeted at the general public.
The nightly build could be used by developers or aircraft developers or the ones who like a challenge.
