This is a beta release for those subscribers who like to test new features early and provide feedback on them.
This version enhances the flight and aircraft models such that multiple fuel tanks are supported. There can now me one, none, or many fuel tanks specified for an aircraft and a level of fuel applied for each. There is a notion of a default amount of fuel (sometimes referred to as "tabs" level) so that when creating a new journey the default is assumed unless you change it.
Weight and balance calculations have also been enhanced, with the addition of print output and lateral calculations. A default weight is now possible, meaning (for example) that you do not always have to fill in your own weight on the sheet. Lateral calculations are currently only invoked when a lateral arm has been entered for a loading point in the aircraft configuration. No checking of lateral limits is currently performed, but the calculation output is visible on the printed sheet. This is a young feature and we are very interested in hearing some feedback on how we're doing lateral weight and balance.
Finally, sunrise and sunset times have been added to the static information displayed for airfields.
