Hi, referring to your edit [1] - I disagree with the notion of fgrun being obsolete/deprecated - at worst, it's unmaintained software - but it's certainly not obsolete due to the integrated Qt launcher. I suppose if were to run a forum poll, many users would report that they're still using fgrun (for a variety of reasons). Thus, I would refer to fgrun as software that is no longer maintained, and which used to be the official FG front-end. Technically, there is no reason to use "past-tense" to describe a functioning piece of software that still works "as is". --Hooray (talk) 13:44, 31 July 2020 (EDT)

I have not actually been using FlightGear since maybe a couple of years and even then used a very old version (basically because I am stuck with a decade old computer).
I was under the impression that, while the source code is still in the code base, a FGRun binary is no longer distributed with FlightGear since many years, hence my edits.
