Subject: [Flightgear-announce] Announce: FlightGear 0.7.7

FlightGear version 0.7.7 (source code release) is now available for

FlightGear is a free, open-source flight simulator project.  Source
code is licensed under the GPL.

There is a new 0.7.7 version of the base package that corresponds with
this new release.  You must have this new base package to go along
with the 0.7.7 source code.

Other prerequisites:

  - You must have SimGear-0.0.15 (www.simgear.org) in order to build
    this most recent release of FlightGear.

  - You must have a version of plib (plib.sf.net) installed before
    building both SimGear and FlightGear.  Plib-1.2.0 will work, but
    we *strongly* recommend that you upgrade to plib-1.4.0 (scheduled
    for release 6/21/2001) to take advantage of it's increased
    robustness, rich set of 3d file loaders, as well as many other
    tweaks, additions, and improvements.
