"Completely overhauled weather module: The current FlightGear 2.4.0 version takes weather generation further by applying the laws of physics to the reported conditions and by determining how the atmosphere interacts with the terrain.

"FlightGear 2.4.0 introduces numerous graphical enhancements: Now capable of rendering highly realistic mountain surfaces, 3-dimensional cityscapes, or shiny metallic surfaces.
