When you download the new version of SB3, checkout the bug page to see what
bugs are still in the program after what, 2 years of, beta testing.

This seems almost like a beta problem of not being able to connect on VATSIM
with the program and then having all these bugs again.

No offense to Joel or any of the SB3 Team.

After two + years they are no longer called bugs. They are now referred to
as "features!" ;)

The community may refer to them as features but the Squawkbox3 website is
still calling them bugs. Not that I am complaining, mind you.
