Log Message:
games/{simgear,flightgear,flightgear-data}: Update to 2018.3.2.

Usability

    Flightplan loading within the launcher.
    Chinese, Russian and Italian translations for the launcher and UI
    Improved support for the state of the aircraft depending on starting \ 
location - cold and dark on the ramp, engine running ready for take-off on the \ 
runway, or in cruise flight.

Input

    Improved joystick configuration and binding options.

AI / Multiplayer

    Multiple Levels of Detail (LoD) for MP and AI aircraft. To improve \ 
performance, low-detail models are used when the viewer is far from the MP \ 
aircraft.
    Fallback models to display in the case where a viewer does not have the MP \ 
aircraft installed.
    Many improvements to AI models including new liveries, timetabled movements

Graphics

    Support for retrieving Canvas images over HTTP. This is a useful feature for \ 
displaying instruments like a PFD, ND, EICAS or any MFD externally from the \ 
FlightGear 3D main window in a separate window or on a separate monitor, \ 
computer or a mobile device. See Read_canvas_image_by_HTTP for more information.
    Improved cloud rendering with stronger Mie scattering on cloud fringes, \ 
improved scattering on cirrus clouds
    Reset: wipe the Effect UniformCache

Scenery

    Improved scenery for Hawaii, the default location for this release.
    New scenery for Jan Mayen, situated northeast of Iceland. Including the \ 
active volcano of Beerenberg (2277m).

JSBSim

    The feature fail_hardover of the <actuator> component was not giving \ 
the correct output in some occurences when clipmax was smaller in absolute value \ 
than clipmin.
    Tables CORNERING_COEFF could not be used for BOGEY contact points.
    Bug fixes for JSBSim atmosphere model at very high altitudes
    Fixed PID integration with the 3rd order Adams-Bashforth was inccorect.
    The fail_stuck property of sensors (accelerometers, magnetometers, gyro, \ 
etc.) without a <lag> element was setting the output to zero instead of \ 
sticking to the last output value.
    When a sensor was stuck, the drift, gain, bias and quantization of the last \ 
output before being stuck were ignored.
    Fixed the Calibrated Air Speed (CAS) computations for supersonic velocities
    Fixed the Nlf (Normal load factor) sign
    Nlf can now be specified as an initial condition via the property ic/targetNlf
    Added blocking sockets to the input features
    Added a property to piston engines to get the AFR (Air to Fuel Ratio)
    Added conversion from m/s to ft/s
    Restored the initial conditions for engines running (-1 means all engines)

Significant Aircraft Updates

    "Metadata" has been added to many aircraft, making it easier to \ 
find new exciting aircraft to fly using the launcher, whether you are interested \ 
in aircraft from the 1920s or twin engined business jets.
    B-25 : Various bug fixes and minor improvements
    Cessna 172 : Improved cockpit, interior lighting.
    Citation II : New panels, radio instruments. Complete remodeling of the \ 
electric system, with accurate bus voltage, circuit breakers. System test knob \ 
implemented.
    F4U : new FDM
    F-14 : V1.8. Improved flight model, particularly in a low-speed regime. \ 
Improved cockpit.
    F-15 : V1.8. Updated flight model, particularly armament mass location. \ 
Performance optimizations. Autopilot improvements.
    F-16 : v3.0. Store options. New liveries. Radar performance optimizations. \ 
Autopilot and system improvements. FDM fixes.
    Saab 37 Viggen : Version 4.313. Various updates, particularly to radar and \ 
armament models.
    Seneca II: Long range tanks, interior lighting,
    SpaceShuttle : Milestone-10. Improved interior (including furry velcro), \ 
launch guidance and orbital plane targeting, more realistic OMS burn procedures, \ 
expanded systems including circuit breaker simulation and failure modeling.
    777: Our flagship airliner now fully supports checklists, allowing you to \ 
learn everything about the aircraft from within the simulator. Full support to \ 
auto-push was also implemented. Bug fixes and minor improvements.

Other

    FG1000 glass panel display, inspired by moving map devices like the the \ 
Garmin G1000
    Improved Replay handling of AI aircraft and carriers - judge your own \ 
carrier landings.
    KC-130 tanker aircraft for air-to-air refueling
    Flightplan GPX import now supports elevation values.
    TACAN: Add support for setting TACAN by frequency

2018.3.2 point release

    Chinese font support for the splash screen / tips, and some updated Chinese \ 
translations
    C172P bug fixes
    fixed crash on certain AMD 64-bit systems relating to SSE intrinsics and \ 
memory alignment
    fixed crash loading flightplans saved from LittleNavMap with non-sequential \ 
waypoint indices
    tolerate missing runways parsing Navigraph procedures, so current cycle can \ 
be used at more airports
    use Ref versions of osgDB methods to avoid crashes, especially after long flights
    fix a NaN in the sky rendering code at extreme orbital altitudes
    set default values of some position properties for consistency with the rest \ 
(affected C172 tie-down mode)
    fix JSBSim wheel-spin down regression
