SBP version 4.0 was released yesterday.

Cannot further comment on it myself, since I still do not have it and am not certain whether my system is even good enough to run it. Some guys have some low frame rates while most are happy, almost everybody gives praise to the improved graphics and new stuff and features. Seems to be a very substantial, important improvement, hence the new version number. New sounds and graphics seem to have boosted immersion.

Important tip seems to be this: if you run into FPS problems, reduce visibility by adding heavy weather, fog, sandstorm, rain, snow, whatever. Sounds counter-intuitive, compared to what you are used to from other games, but thats how the sim works. It puts CPU over GPU performance.

Will be some time before I get a hand on it.
