Rolling out version 0.5!

Here is the new version:
  • configuration/preference panel (mostly for controls and weather for now)
  • real-time/configurable cloud coverage and wind conditions
  • multiplayer chat
  • added the Hughes 269a/TH-55 Osage light helicopter
  • added the Sopwith Camel biplane
  • HUD (instruments) scales to screen size
  • redesign of the user interface
Some notes:

- As it makes things a bit tricky for newcomers, wind is disabled by default: you can enable it in the "options" panel.
- The Hughes helicopter is really experimental and difficult to fly. It is necessary to disable the yaw/roll mix in order to get proper control.

Have a nice flight.
