Pete, I am just using your vacation schedule for fun (don't hate me).  Love your work, it just in the past almost all releases coincided with your vacation schedule.

Yes, I know, and it has turned into a bit of a rule. But, unfortunately, this year my wife and I are going away on these Steam Railway jaunts far less, as she insists that she must sort her garden out as it is getting out of hand! 😉

BTW, FSUIPC5 should always now be compatible with new releases, at least until and unless L-M makes some serious incompatible changes to SimConnect. There are no direct "hacks" into the P3D4 code. FSUIPC5 may (and does) take advantage or NEW features, but I make sure its operation is in no way dependent on those. They will either be just improved actions or more usually added facilities, lke the recent Mouse Macro implementation.

The changes from P3D4.0 to 4.1 were an exception to that rule -- one I regret but by the time I'd realised that a whole range of improvments I'd implemented were not now 4.0 compatible, it was too late to go back.

Anyway, what I am really saying is that unless I give an advanced warning (as advanced as I can) there is now never a need for a "scramble" for an new FSUIPC5 release. 😉

Well there we have it! The fact that Pete is NOT taking a vacation this year means the release will be June 2019..!

No. My holidays are always countable - as per Wiki sources, original English usage 😉

Pete,

I know your happier than me about variations in our language but this is one that I feel has fairly strict rules about. But I don't want to labour the point. It was said partly in jest. I shall listen and watch for which word is used in relation to 'countable nouns' on and in our media. :wink:

“At” is just a ball park estimate. I did not say LAST day. Do you really need to break down my reply. I’m sure the community knew what I meant plus many have seen the interview.

A day or two before the Aerosoft Airbus A318/319 release thus setting them back a few weeks.  lol.

I recently did a complete windows reinstallation...hence I need the release to happen soon.  All my addons are sitting on the side.  Have clean build, only p3d 4.2, pmdg 737&777 and majestic q400 (installed outside the sim, its magic on how this works...such a stress operation).  I wish Orbx will follow this.

But PMDG uninstallation is quick and painless. 

I am really excited to see what LM brings to 4.3.  I think 2019 or 2020 is when we see P3Dv5.

But back to present moment and from what I can tell - 4.3 could have tons of updates
