In addition to the P-38L announcement, the developer also revealed that Raimond, aka GotGravel, will join the team as a Flight Model developer. He will bring to the team (now 3 people) 38 years of computer program experience in some 25 various coding languages.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
