A new version of the X-Plane desktop flight simulator, which is arguably the world's most advanced flight simulator, is now available. The Linux version remains in-step with the Windows and OS X builds.

X-Plane 10.50 is the new release available today and it features new city auto-gen, ATC improvements, better AI aircraft, updated airport scenery and more. In total X-Plane 10.50 has 3D scenery for 3,102 different airports.

X-Plane 10.50 also features improvements to some aircraft models, some terrain enhancements, various performance improvements, and a wide variety of fixes and other improvements.

Those interested in learning more about X-Plane 10.50 can see the release notes for a complete overview of all the work that went into this major release. (Side note: Unfortunately I haven't received any updated benchmark demo file from Laminar Research in several years, so sadly no new benchmarks of Linux GPUs/drivers with this flight simulator.)
