"The Scorched Earth Team is proud to announce the release of the latest SEOW software suite, available at Latest Schorched Earth files. New features include :

* Improved iconography and template support for Engineering Units (VEN class).
* Two extra island maps for Okinawa.
* Default fuel load increased to 50% for short flights.
* Improved MP support for PHP5.
* Support for temporary airbase operations, including pre-defined temporary airbases for Malta and Okinawa (See here for detailed instructions on usage).
* "Takeoff Under Fire" campaign option for overrun airbases.
* Arbitrary names for Resupply Points.
* Toggle command for Pilot Reports in Context Menu.
* All 4.04m objects now supported.
* Corrected gravestone and funeral pyre tracking for destroyed Chiefs in DCS.
* Corrected bugs in DCS Buildings handler.
* Corrected bugs in DCS Bridge Destruction handler.
* Faster DCS Scenery handler.
* Armored flak, freighters and submarines are now recon-capable.
* Improved handling of radio silence for topup flights.
* Simplified handling of flights based at temporary airbases in campaign templates.

and many more minor bug fixes.

This release introduces support for temporary airbases, but most database structures are unchanged. The previous Statistics engine (v1.41) is unchanged in the new MP release. With care, it will be possible to retro-fit SEDB25 databases with new SEDB26 data and structures, if need be.

Furthermore, Katana is about to release a really nice toolset for administering MySQL databases for SE. Essentially the toolset is a set of .sql scripts that will help you build the minimum database load required for a particular sector. It's a breeze to use, and will reduce query times during subsequent MP, DCS and Statistics operations. Stay tuned for more on that shortly.

Many thanks to RAF74_Buzzsaw, RAF74_Wildcard, E111_Nachote, RCAF_Radon, D-13th_Mytzu, 102nd-YU-Brajo, III/JG11_Tige, No457_Squog, AKA_Riviter and everyone else who contributed bug reports, comments and suggestions.

Excellent News Murdock. You guys ROCK!!

We're involved with III/JG11 in a compaign on Okinawa, and it is the most immersive experience We've ever had. Our next campaign will be Guadalcanal '42 - '43. It should be even better.

Thanks 4Shades, and all the rest of you blokes for all your hard work and dedication to this sim, and this community. I wish there was a way for you all to be properly rewarded.
