Here's the changelog:

Open Beta 1
  • Added Turbulence improvements throughout for increased realism and compatibility with various aircraft types
  • Improved weather update process to significantly reduce “cloud redraws” when the relevant cell areas haven’t changed significantly even during a download/update process
  • Added new 3-letter USA airport/weather station data support – 3 letter airports now provide actual weather data, when available, instead of interpolating
  • Improved weather station coverage by approximately 500 stations globally
  • Added 5 second delay when looping ATIS/Flightwatch messages
  • Added common data export path support as per FSX/P3D AS products (available in General options)
  • Added support of VV/// METAR elements which will force ceiling to 0ft
  • Added additional X-Plane version checking logic during folder selection process to prevent a case where automatic detection of an old/obsolete version could be found without user’s confirmation and no ability to select the desired/proper version folder
  • Added + character support in Active Sky account e-mail addresses
  • Improved documentation regarding default X-Plane location/folder selection process whether standard or Steam variant
  • Added various user registration process improvements
  • Improved cell/station logic logging for debugging purposes
  • Improved interpolation logic for very short flights with or without flight plan for more accurate weather conditions even when a station borders multiple “cells” that previously may have had variable weather causing apparent discrepancies
  • Improved interpolation logic in general
  • Adjusted Maximum and Minimum Surface Visibility options when in default non-global depiction mode to limit maximum value to 20 miles (due to X-Plane limitations in this mode)
  • Reduced yaw/side forces during turbulence effects
  • Various UI adjustments for 125% and 150% scaling modes
  • Changed default maximum surface visibility to 20 miles for consistency between depiction modes
  • Updated Documentation to account for changes
  • Fixed problem with ASXP turbulence not effecting larger aircraft appropriately
  • Fixed issue regarding yaw forces seemingly persisting after turbulence events in some cases
  • Fixed problem with cirrus clouds not depicting in many cases when in default cell/theme depiction mode
  • Fixed some UI layout issues in certain cases
  • Fixed some language issues and typos in UI messages, descriptions and documentation
  • Fixed problem in password change function where password change may cause inability to login in some cases
  • Fixed issue with crosswind attenuation with gusts/variability present
  • Fixed problem with very long passwords
  • Fixed an issue regarding sigmet boundary parsing in some cases
  • Fixed problem regarding delayed/obsolete TAF data preventing proper interpolation in some cases
  • Fixed issue regarding AI aircraft data read in some cases (regarding certain add-ons that modify internal AI aircraft datarefs)
Open Beta 2

Active Sky Xp Update

  • Tuned turbulence: Decreased effect scale for middle-heavy weight aircraft, Increased effect scale slightly for light aircraft, increase pitch rotational effect overall, reduced roll effect slightly
  • Updated API docs to correct issue regarding as_xconnect.txt module log filename
  • Added client IP address/ports logging into in as_xconnect.txt
Open Beta 3
  • Fixed 2 potential crashes
  • Miscellaneous stability improvements
  • Updated User’s Guide (typos)
Open Beta 4
  • Adjusted gusts/variability effects for increased smoothing, more organic feel and reduced repetitive yaw movement in near-surface wind layers
  • Tuned turbulence for more effect for heavy to super heavy aircraft (767+)
  • Tuned turbulence for less effect for mid weight airliners (757)
  • Improved Cirrus depiction for more appropriate cloud/texture type
Release Candidate 1
  • Changed maximum surface visibility (and minimum surface visibility’s maximum setting) to 30SM vs. previous 20SM, when in default theme/cell depiction mode, to increase surface vis when conditions dictate
Release Candidate 2
  • Slightly reduced roll motion in turbulence effect
  • Adjusted turbulence for less overall effect for light/medium weight GA aircraft (2000-10000lbs)
  • Fixed potential memory leak/OOM issue related to logging
  • Fixed an error in parsing old .fms flight plan format containing an uppercase “3 VERSION” line
