    You can compile for linux and do a 'make install'. We are working on instructions and a pre-built package to download. We will post them as soon as we have it. If you need help in the meantime please PM me

  • Where is the linux link? It mentions linux in the Heading, but there is no link in the "more information" area.

    Congratulation to the release! I'm quite happy to see that the QGroundControl codebase is now not only embraced by Parrot for the AR.Drone 2.0 and used by AutoQuad as GCS, but sports the next generation GCS for APM, too. You did a very good job at adding the Mission Planner look and feel and adding the configuration screens for APM.
