A new release of the 1.62 branch of Oolite for Linux is now available - version 1.62-5. This is a minor bugfix release, and incorporates the following bug fixes since 1.62-4:
- Joystick initialization now sets initial values from the current stick positions to prevent 'zero throttle until waggled' bug on first launch of the day.
