Changelog of this version:
  • The "Enable Controller" option in user preferences is now turned off by default.  This prevents red directional arrows from displaying as a result of uncalibrated joysticks and other controllers being connected to Earth at startup.
  • For enhanced security, "Use HTTPS for Google connections" is now toggled on by default.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the cache size rose above user-specified limits.
  • Fixed a crash resulting from searching on some Windows machines.
  • Updated the LEAP API to version 1.0.8.
  • Reduced LEAP controller sensitivity to user hand motions.  This enables a smoother flight and greater control over your flight path when using a LEAP.
  • Imagery no longer stays blurry upon zooming in when the cache is full.
  • Certain NVIDIA cards, notably the GeForce 6600, 6800 and 7950, no longer suffer corrupted text or navigation controls in DirectX mode.
  • Font and tilt settings now stick between sessions.
