The SDK is now being used by over 50 companies and hundreds ofprogrammers and artists. We have spent time listening, discussing andlearning from our 3rd party developers, and we are working closelywith them to keep improving the tools. The new aircraft editor isclose to being finished with several improvements to the workflow. Wealso made lots of progress on WebAssembly support, which is thetechnology that will allow the porting of native code to ourplatform. We are excited to share what we developed with our partnerswithin the next few weeks.

Several 3rd parties have started to share the roadmaps with us andwe happy to report that dozens of planes and airports are indevelopment and we are hopeful that quite a few of them will be readyby the time our new simulator is released.
