Changelog 3.2

10 bytes added, 14:08, 12 October 2014
Started cleanup; we agreed the video is very nice, but doesn't really show many new features, apart from the 777.
FlightGear features more than 400 aircraft, a worldwide scenery database, a multi-player environment, detailed sky modelling, a flexible and open aircraft modelling system, varied networking options, multiple display support, a powerful scripting language and an open architecture. Best of all, being open-source, the simulator is owned by the community and everyone is encouraged to contribute.
