Today Is 05jan09! You Know What That Means?

Recommended Posts

Captains-I thought I'd let you know that we are currently uploading a final test build for the PMDG MD-11 for FS9 so that our MD-11 Technical Advisory Team can take the airplane for a spin to see if we have nailed down the last few items that were on our plate for resolution.If all goes well, we MIGHT have a release late in the day (zulu) on Monday!If we discover any items that do not pass muster- we'll likely push the release back 24hrs to tie those loose ends up. We'll keep you posted as the day progresses so that you know when/if we make a decision to release or to hold.Also: I'll be making the liveries live for you to download at some point over the next 12-14hrs. We have a few technical tasks to accomplish but then those will be available to you.We appreciate your patience during the past two months while we have been arm-wrestling FS2004. This transition should have gone more smoothly, but like all things in life- it is the unexpected items that do the most havoc to your schedule.We'll have more information for you later in the day!Post Edit: Marcel's question below reminded me that I haven't mentioned this much lately so: The FSX version will be updated to match the FS9 version that releases on Mon/Tue. We anticipate putting the FSX version into the hands of our Tech Team on Monday evening, and expect it to release about 24-48rs later. We elected not to give them both versions at the same time because it confuses everyone involved. (Especially us. :-) )

Marcel-The advanced tutorial is a ways off. We've mentioned that a number of times. It's release is totally and completely unrelated to anything other than the author's available time. ;-)The FSX update will release in very close proximity to the FS9 version. I've mentioned this a number of times- but haven't reiterated that point much lately- so... there you go. ;-)Hope that helps!

Awesome! Many of us have been waiting quite a while for this! And certainly you've been waiting quite a while to release it! I hope all goes well with the final tests, and maybe this evening I'll be checking out the MD-11 for the first time...Tim

I got a Christmas Card from my credit card company, is that good or bad ? :( Thanks for these updates Robert, it's such a nice change from the "it'll be ready when you see it on the website" we get from so many places. Things like this - real people with a proven history of being there all the time to answer questions and offer useful official information - make a huge difference when it comes to deciding where to spend our dollars.Gary
