I'm surprised to read that they're actually now having source code on
offer, do you have a pointer to the code ?

You will need to sign up at http://forge.osor.eu/projects/albadisp/ and join the project to get the code.

Well, OpenRADAR is going the opposite direction: It already provides
FlightGear MP (plus HLA RTI via a side project), ASTERIX could be done
as well by changing swapping another interface in  ;-)
I'm surprised to realize that a lot of people don't spare effort for
discussing new ATC clients while a slightly rudimentary but rather
functional system is already available ....

I am not sure what you mean by the above. I did not try openradar with FG, but tried out albatross
which is indeed a professional grade radar display. In any case albatross and openradar are two different animals. I just suggested that there might not be a need to re-invent the wheel when there is solution out there already.
