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

Focus

Establish the FlightGear Canvas system to unify the 2D/3D rendering back-ends (HUDs, 2D panels, PUI) in FlightGear in a modular fashion with support for multi-threaded and distributed setups (FSWeekend/LinuxTag or multiplayer/dual-control) and provide flexible, and efficient, building blocks in the form of dedicated Canvas Elements to expose RTT/MRT functionality to fgdata contributors, so that modern and experimental PFD/MFD avionics can be built in FlightGear, and experimental terrain/scenery rendering strategies as well as alternate renderering schemes can be prototyped using pipelines expressed in XML-configurable stages mapped onto property-enabled FBOs represented as Canvas textures.
