    X-Plane 11.50 Beta 5 Recalled

    Sigh. Well, foo.

    I was going to write a post about X-Plane 11.50 beta 5 - what's new in it, the new ways we are debugging GPU crashes, the crash bugs we've fixed, etc. A lot of stuff that we thought was pretty good went into beta 5. Cool new technology! Big bug fixes! Lots of winning!

    As it turns out, beta 5 is dead. I hit "go" on the release this afternoon, and half an hour ago, I hit "stop." The auto crash reporter was showing way too many new crashes in memory management that we had not seen before, and this strongly implies a new and serious bug.

      Just in time.
      I was going to pull the trigger on a 8GB video card so I could handle the huge inital memory load that Vulkan requires.

      Whew .... Now I have more time to save for a better card.
