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

This article or section will be worked on in the upcoming hours or days.
Note: It all works. We could use this template right away!
See history for the latest developments.
The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.


This template is used for translating news in the {{news}} template displayed on the Main Page.

  • Translated dates based on language prefix of the main page.
  • For a new FlightGear release it will show (translated) texts.
  • You can also type in custom text and its translations for not release-specific news (but keep the dates).


{{Localized Release Announcement|date= |version= |codename= |lang=}}
{{Localized Release Announcement|date= |en=|ca=|de=|es=|fr=|it=|nl=|pl=|pt=|ru=|sl=}}

All parameters but date are optional.

Date of the release in any format like <d>-<m>-<yyyy> (or <Month> <d>, <yyyy>), for example 25-08-2019.
Version of the release, for example 3.4 or 2018.3.2. (optional)
Default airport or name of release, for example Bergen. (optional)
For other news to be used like {{LangSwitch}}, for example | en = Hello World | de = Hallo Welt | es... (optional)
Language override for testing and demonstration purposes. (optional)
