FG version needed?

Hi, I just saw this page and this aircraft. I get it uses the new canvas system, and I was wondering if it needs the latest git version of FG, either in its (of the plane) stable or git version. I'd suggest to add a note on that. --Bigstones (talk) 17:17, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Technically, it should not require anything more recent than 3.0, as it's not using any of the recent Canvas/MapStructure improvements unlike the NavDisplay, it really is fairly low-level Nasal/Canvas code so far and most things are done manually instead of using dedicated frameworks, i.e. there are not many external dependencies. Performance-wise, it would probably still make sense to aim for 3.2, because of some Canvas-level optimizations, but otherwise everything seems fairly self-contained, at the cost of being much less generic. If a required FG version is to be provided, I'd vote for changing the infobox template accordingly. --Hooray (talk) 17:52, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
