On to Alpha....

Been doing some heavy UI programming for a couple of weeks. The version of SquawkBox 3 that runs within Flight Simulator will now minimize to just the title bar, but will unroll to display arriving messages. All windows (the main window and chat windows) now also snap to each other, to the FS window, and to the edge of the screen, making efficient window layout a snap.

I am now moving onto some further testing to work out some serious multiplayer bugs. Once that is ironed out, alpha versions of SquawkBox 3 will be going out to a few individuals. During that time, I will work on bugs that they find as well as completing the last features like weather, the installer, and FS2004 integration.
