Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Switch to {{flightgear url}} and {{simgear url}} to fix the broken Gitorious links.

|1= Making the property tree thread-safe is an interesting but a very daunting task since properties are (ab)used in so many ways.. :) I have a soft spot for using multi-buffering to support concurrent readers with concurrent writers, but for something as unstructured (in terms of who writes where) as this I'm at a loss to see how or if it could be applied.

|1= the property tree as it is currently is in need of some rework because of the ownship (single desktop aircraft) approach. This is easier than it sounds - basically most of the property tree becomes part of the aircraft and only a few items are shared. This will also allow the switching of aircraft. The reason to consider this now, and maybe not implement it, is to ensure that the design will support this when it is time to implement it.

The idea is to introduce so called "managed properties" for crucial runtime state, in order to optionally ensure, enforce and maintain integrity of such state variables by using additional meta information to apply data-integrity requirements, as well as access privileges to prevent important runtime state from being mutated by non-authorized components or invalid data.
