Version 2.0.2 (8 November 2023)

Important Note

In preparation for upcoming feature enhancements to the X1000 including native synthetic vision and additional pages, as discussed on the X-Plane blog here, reworking of our internal G1000 state tracking logic has begun. For both this reason, and additionally to address numerous recurring stability issues, we have removed the custom synthetic vision system from the SR2X line.
