Same question for me.
Not enough detailed information about what is changed to the FSX version.

Looks like an update for P3D mostly.

Dont get me wrong, I really appriciate it when companies go out of their way to give us continued update service!

But the reason I want to know is that due FSX fragile nature, I dont want to update unless the airport is actually visually updated to its latest layout (which was not changed actually since v2.5 I think) or unless perfomance improvements have been made.

Further, if I remember correctly, the AFCAD of V2.0 till v2.5 was wrong (incorrect frequencies and DME distances to threshold for some of the ILS approaches).
The only fix for this was posted by a guy at Aerosoft (a replacement AFCAD file)!

Does update 2.6 at least have the correct AFCAD?

Airport layout hasn't changed and the only Afcad change is the removal of 1 or 2 parking positions. This update is not about "fixes", its just changes and library additions.

Most changes are internal things like ground markings, edgelights, runway lights etc no longer being FS8/9 compiled. Too boring to list these.

Visually the main changes are:
Config Tool support to turn Options on/off
Changed Floodlight and Lamp Halo FX
Added De-ice trucks (same as Toronto)
Added Snowdrift FX (same as Toronto)
Added 3D ramp people
Added animated Windsock Option
Changed some Night maps (Terminal Windows)
Changed texture format on most DDS textures to save some VAS

Thanks Martin. Awesome - snowdrift, yes!!! Cheers for this.

I imagine there won't be any performance impact?
