TFDi B717 Approaches v1.1

Collin Biedenkapp shared some more information today on the TFDi Design blog about future plans for their stunning Boeing 717 for FSX and Prepar3D. Along with a plethora of changes that members of the Community Opt-In Beta have been able to experience, including TrueGlass and RealLight, v1.1 promises to round out the aircraft with a texturing overhaul, modelling update, and the large number of fixes and improvements incorporated into the v1.0.9.17 opt-in beta.
