Release of 0.9.2

Information about the 0.9.2 release.

Reset your matching settings, then save them (Reset ALL and SAVE settings). Then set it according to your needs and save again, see Matching settings, using models without mapping entry / no DB entry. Most likely you also need to save your audio settings again, as those have changed and need to be updated.

XPlane users, if you install a test version (developer/aka alpha version) you have to manually install XSwiftBus! You can download it from the alpha download page, see Download developer and alpha versions from datastore .

Installation

We recommend you install 0.9.2 parallel to 0.9.1, then test it and if your are happy with it, uninstall 0.9.1. There is no need to re-create your model set, you can copy settings and data from other swift installations at any time in the wizard.
