  • FlightDeck 0.9.5 status
  • SDK 1.0 status
  • CFX Python dependency linker issue
    • FlightDeck requires a critical, potentially minor change be made to the dependency linker to avoid major usability issues. In a case where two different libraries of the same name are used anywhere in an add-on's code, the add-on will fail to execute as expected. Brian and I discussed a change to the package.json manifest file that would correct the issue, but we need to decide whether to land it.
