XCSoar 6.8.7 released
(12. Aug 2016 by max)

The seventh maintenance release of XCSoar 6.8 fixes two potential crash bugs and one minor SkyLines live tracking bugs.

Most importantly, this release prepares a new revolutionary feature, which we will introduce later: the XCSoar Cloud. It is a service which allows sharing thermal/wave locations and other weather data with pilots in your area. This release adds some basic code, which allows us to develop and test the service; please enable it to help development. The full feature set will be available in XCSoar 7.0.
