Hi,
On mumble.zenserv.fr, you can only access to "control" rooms ("AFIS", "Approach", "Tower", "Ground"),
EXCEPT "Free" and "TEMP" rooms, in witch you can go where you like, and you can create temporary rooms.

Sorry for this very late answer.
Best regards.

Hi,
The server :

mumble://mumble.zenserv.fr port 60303

is available (since long time).
It is 100% compatible FGExtend (it was designed for that).
Welcome to all.
Best regards.

New FGExtend release

Postby icare38 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 11:09 pm

Release 2018.06.18

What's new in version 2018.06.18
1) New button to set 777 (and probably many other aircrafts) transponder mode to ALT, since it is not possible with 777, neither with cockpit interface, nor with F12. This is a problem when interacting with ATC-pie control.

New FGExtend release

Postby icare38 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 11:54 am

Release 2018.09.08

What's new in 2018.09.08 release

1) Bypassed FGFS memory leak related to "telnet" connections, the connections are now maintained as long as they do not fall by themselves, previously there were about 3 connections established and closed per second.

can you provide more information about this? i've not seen anything on the developers' mailing list about it... is there a bug in the tracker about it??

Memory leaks

Postby icare38 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:36 pm

Hi wkitty42,

Thanks for your post.
I tried to contact you by email, but i didn't get any reply.

About "telnet" memory leak, write a program initiating/reading some properties/closing connection about 3/4 times per second, then you will note the issue.

Here an other memory leak problem, very easy to observe in PHNL, seems to be related to MP traffic.
Please take care about it.

I know that most flightgear users make one flight, then leave FGFS, and/or turn off their computers, but it's actually a problem for me, and anyway it's not acceptable for a program to leak memory.

Best regards.

New compilation
Restarting FGFS
--------------------------------------------------------
RAM 2.2 Go - PHNL 10H00 (FG OL*)
RAM 3.6 Go - PHNL 17H00 (FG OL*)
RAM 5.7 Go - PHNL 19H00 (FG OL*)
RAM 6.4 Go - PHNL 20H00 (FG OL*)
RAM 7.8 Go - PHNL 20H00 (FG OL*)

2018/09/12
RAM 8.9 Go - PHNL 12H00 (FG OL)

Since i have "only" 16 Go RAM, i NEED to restart FGFS.

*FGOL means flightgear online (MP)

it never appeared on the list because you sent it to "-requests"... "flightgear-devel-requests" is for configuration options like joining, unjoining, receiving emails or digest, etc...

the proper address to send posts to for the developers' mailing list is flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net... please try to send it to the list again...

Hi again wkitty42,

Thank you very much.

For some reason, i did'nt receive your mail (not deleted unintentionally, nor in junk folder).

however, fgextend@autosoft.fr seems to work.

Best regards.

ok... i can try sending another test message if you like but yes, please do resubmit your remote to the mailing list using the address i gave above... that's the proper one for list posts...

EDIT1: 12:30 -0400 : i have forwarded my previous message to your fgextend email address just now... it is again coming from my gmail account as described above...

EDIT2: 13:18 -0400 : i see your post on the dev list... glad we figured that one out for you :)
