I too would welcome a bug-fix release shortly: I just got a bug report from 
Innis Cunningham that the traffic manager still crashes on windows machines. 
I had hoped I'd fixed this, but being a Linux developer myself, I don't have 
a real good opportunity to test any changes I'm making for windows versions.

David, earlier, I seemed to remember that you were leaning toward integrating 
your AI/ATC code with Dave Culp's AIModel code. In the light of this, 
wouldn't it be a more feasable approach to start thinking about ways to do 
this and eventually phase out your model animation code? I'm not suggesting 
you should do this, but in the light of your earlier mail, it would seem a 
logical step. Any thoughts?
