Laminar Research has released their first public beta of the massive X-Plane 11.0 flight simulator update. It's a huge update and expect some bugs at this stage, but should be a very exciting release.

X-Plane 11 should be an incredible update for this demanding Linux-friendly flight simulator. We've been monitoring (and benchmarking with) X-Plane for years and 11.0 is a huge upgrade over X-Plane 10 as well as compared to X-Plane 9 too.

A demo of X-Plane 11.0 is also available for those interested. All of the details via this blog post.

X-Plane system requirements are stiff with their recommendation being 16~24GB of RAM or more, a Core i5 6600K Skylake CPU or better, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or better (or equivalent on the AMD side). The minimum and recommended system requirements here.
