"Looks like Microsoft has silently shipped DirectX 8.2 (build 4.08.02.0134) with its brand-new Combat Flight Simulator 3!
However, this can be considered a minor release as only the DirectPlay-API has been updated.
Users, who already have DirectX 8.1b installed (that also includes users of Windows XP SP1), only need to apply a rather small DirectPlay 8.2 update, in order to upgrade DirectX to version 8.2!
Please note: As several people already pointed out in the comments, this release is neither time-bombed nor is it a beta!"
