1. Corrected ability to override warning that a flight plan .fms file exists when selecting a filename to use when saving the current route.
2. Corrected coding that does not properly detect and reject waypoint misplacement if the waypoint is an NDB, and a VOR with the same NAVID is found before the plugin finds the correct NDB waypoint.
3. Corrected display of the FLT PLAN page when no waypoints have been loaded.
4. Added ability to read tail.txt files, placed in livery folders, allowing the RADIO 1 page to display the actual tail number for the aircraft depicted in the livery. The maximum number of characters that can currently be displayed is eight (8). (Default is ERJ-175).
More info regarding the plugin changes:
1. Added X-Plane plugin menu item that will allow the user to select the type of winglets that are to be used. This persists from X-Plane session to session by use of config file. If the config file is not found at first, one is created and the default winglets are used.
2. Ground equipment and pushback options are now restored following a flight, subject to the following conditions:
a. The aircraft has flown, detected by reaching an altitude AGL of at least 100 feet.
b. Ground speed is zero.
c. The parking brake has been set.
