A great, short article on SimHQ highlights the features of the new 4.11 patch for IL-2. Get stoked everyone! This is a great patch!
Links to the patch can be found at the 1C Publishing forums. They have found one CTD bug that is affecting some users, so look for an update to this post soon.
Update: New beta hotfix that addresses the CTD issues with multiple core processors.

Here’s to an exciting new year! IL2 4.10m was recently released with a maintenance release sure to follow fairly soon. Hopefully we’ll see some squad members jump on the SEOW bandwagon and start flying with Faust and Tolwyn again. We’ve been having a good time at Midway carrier hunting.
Surly and I have been flying a bit of Janes F/A 18 lately. Pretty damn fun. If any of you are interested, please let me know.
