'''Instruments & HUDs'''
* There's a new fully scriptable 2D rendering system supported for creating instruments, the so called [[Canvas]] which allows you to create fully dynamic cockpit instruments and HUDs, even by loading and drawing vector images (SVG). This can be used to create CDUs/MCDUs for FMC, complex glass cockpit avionics (MFDs, EICAS, EFIS etc) and any other "glass" instruments that could previously only be created in C++ space. All of this has now become possible just by using FlightGear's built-in [[Nasal]] scripting language which is very similar to JavaScript, without having to rebuild FlightGear from source.

* A new flexible, 2D rendering system designed for complex instruments such as CDUs, MFDs, EICAS, HUDs and other glass cockpit interfaces. Canvas allows aircraft designers to easily build complex instruments without needing specialized C++ code.
