Need FlightGear updated to 2.8.0
Last modified: 2012-09-11 16:50:50 EDT
Description of problem:
FlightGear needs updated to version 2.8.0.
FlightGear has recently released version 2.8.0 which has numerous enhancements, a lot of bugfixes plus it supports a number of new controllers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I was able to manually get FG 2.8.0 built under F17 so it should be fairly easy for the FG packager to update the package.
Had to install OpenSceneGraph to get it to build.
FlightGear 2.8.0 has just been built for Fedora 18.
I won't update to 2.8.0 for Fedora 17, because I prefer to limit Fedora 17 updates to bug fixes only, and also I consider that it would decrease the interest to upgrade to the next Fedora release.
But, if you want to try the Fedora 18 packages, they should work on Fedora 17 too : https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/SimGear-2.8.0-1.fc18,FlightGear-2.8.0-1.fc18,FlightGear-data-2.8.0-1.fc18
