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

Proposition for the new content / organisation of the FlightGear Qt launcher.

rem: each first-level item in the following list represents an icon in the vertical icon box, on the left side of the mainwindow. The sub-level items could be organised by tabs, groups, panels in separated pages.

rem2: some of these items don't exist yet, or are unstable. This list could be a starting point to develop some ideas...
