    Release Notes: The radar client now displays most of the map, although some features are still missing, like airways, SIDs, STARs and IAPs. An example sector file ("test.sct") is included and used by the demo. Work is progressing on the DSR radar- mode. Most symbols should be correct now.

      Release Notes: This release now comes with "TowerView", a 3D "tower- simulator" which provides a 360-degree view from the tower. Aircraft on VATSIM are rendered in 3D (only B737 -600, no textures yet). Satellite imagery can be used as ground texture (example included: EDDT - Tegel Airport, Berlin).
