How long do these versions typically remain beta? Would love to use this in Oz if stable.

Usually it stays Beta until tested by a group of us that act as test dummies.
Some revisions do have problems that need feedback and fixing. This commonly gets done pretty quickly when issues are fed back.
I'd suggest looking at the feature improvements and deciding if you think they will be useful.
Note- you can always go back to the earlier version you have if there is a real problem. Keep the earlier version on a spare update stick.
Obviously test before race day. We do this at Perry almost every year.
Good luck
UH

This beta has been quite well tested already, no issues, and should be designated as a regular release soon. We would recommend you fly with 3.5.4155 as long as you have a chance to configure and test well ahead of time.

I'm seeing flarm targets but all the tail numbers are wrong. Is anyone else gauging this problem with
Cn flarm display?

Hi John,

You're saying the tac flarm display tail numbers are wrong on CN2?

The reason is almost certainly that CN2 is displaying the last 2 digits of the flarm radio ID. And the reason for that is the flarm being received isn't in the flarmnet database you have loaded, in which case CN2 falls back to the radio ID.

On at least on one occasion, I am about 85% certain the database I d/l'ed from flarmnet was corrupted. They (flarm, flarmnet, et al) don't make this stuff easy to check on the ground....

best,
Evan Ludeman for CNi

Evan:
Thanks. I didn't know about the tail number issue. Likely most of the gliders around williams were not in flarmnet which would explain it. I'll get out with a known good flarm and see if I get a good tail number. Look forward to the beta. CN/CNV working really nicely in weak wave on our last flight. But someday I hope to nudge you guys to putting in the wind-based mac cready corrections..
John
