A new RealFlight Evolution beta, version 10.10.087, is now available. It includes some worthwhile rendering and user interface improvements. We would like to allow time for beta testing and feedback before releasing it to everyone. The new “Image Quality” setting controls the resolution at which visuals are computed before they are displayed. At values above Normal it produces an antialiasing effect through supersampling. View the setting description for more details.
