Default Is there an updated beta version of Normandy map?

I read about it in IL2 forums.
Normandy map and current DM is what keeps me out of DCS.

Would be nice to have an updated map.

The updated map looks really gorgeous - had great fun nearly hitting the sea as I admired the coast - Point du Hoc is really well modelled
