Re-worked portions of the Payload Manager to allow displaying CG and manipulating exterior elements even when an FSE flight is active
AP code was restoring CRS2 to CRS1 value on aircraft reload
Disable X-Plane's built-in random failures on load and restore the setting on exit. We have our own failure logic.
Panel rendering performance improvement
Added printable normal checklists in PDF format, courtesy of Grau Adler
Sidebar drawer towing function should work from inside the cockpit.
G1000 NG redline should be 104% not 102%.
VOR intercepts were broken in the previous beta.
Removed icing effect from engine inlet lip, as that part of the inlet is heated by an exhaust bleed.

Downloading US obstacle database was horribly slow, resulting in soft sim lockup
Avoid printing weights in the load manager as negative zero
Hovering pilot door glass fixed

Generator wear rate was excessive
Cabin thermal conductivity wasn't responding properly to fast flight.
Fuel automatic selector wasn't correctly switching when the fuel level sensors were broken
Pressing a service button in maintenance manager didn't update the window
IAS selector window should use a completely black background, not dark-grey-black
Tow clickspot on nosewheel can be clicked through the instrument panel
ADC-generated alerts weren't taking sensor inaccuracies into account
Generator switch dataref was misnamed in docs
Main door was snapping closed when battery was drained and added notification if battery is drained and user attempts to operate the main door
Outflow valve & safety valve bleed-through rates were too low, resulting in lack of depress when bleed was closed
Fixed race condition causing a crash in panel rendering
Fire extinguisher was protruding out of the fuselage a touch
Hot air rheostat dataref doc was incorrectly labeled as temp_sel
Default the rain effects to OFF on Mac
Radio altimeter window could flash occasionally due to race condition
Synthetic vision system could cause a crash due to erroneously trying to load pixel data from a buffer, instead of allocating a blank buffer
Low-signal VOR & NDB behavior was reworked to use normal distributions
Low-signal DME error is now physically based
Removed unnecessary error messages about X-Plane navdata format errors
Implemented duplicate navaid removal to work around inconsistent data between hand-placed localizers and AIRAC data
