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

PLIB is a set of software libraries for writing games. FlightGear has used PLIB for most of its development. It is also used by the FlightGear related program Atlas. PLIB is open source, GPL.

FlightGear 1.0.0 (released in 2007) was the last public release to use PLIB for the 3d scene graph, before the the transition to OpenSceneGraph (OSG). FlightGear still uses PLIB for various I/O tasks, e.g. joysticks.

PLIB is needed when building SimGear, FlightGear and TerraGear.
