As most readers will be aware, FG supports two weather models - Basic Weather which represents METAR data directly, and Local Weather which  models weather more realistically, with more variation.  In 2.8.0 these were configured separately using different UIs.  Stuart Buchanan and Thorsten Renk have been working on unifying the user interfaces to provide a more user-friendly and consistent interface.  This work is now available in git.

A further usability enhancement has been made by Stuart Buchanan to allow configuration of joysticks through a GUI in-sim.  Instead of configuring a joystick using XML, users can now change joystick bindings within the simulator - no XML knowledge required.  The updated joystick configuration takes effect immediately.  This work is also available in git, and should make it much easier for new users (or those with joysticks unknown to FG) to get flying.
