v1.2.0: Simultaneous dual com support and TCAS

PilotEdge v1.2.0 was just released with simultaneous dual comm support for windows/linux/mac.
For any aircraft developers who want to ensure their aircraft are dual comm compatible...
- TX is determined by sim/cockpit/switches/audio_panel_out (6 for COM1, 7 for COM2)
- RX for COM1 is determined by sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/audio_selection_com1 and sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/com1_power
- RX for COM2 is determined by sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/audio_selection_com2 and sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/com2_power
It's possible to be receiving COM1 and COM2 simultaneously. However, only one radio can be set to transmission (via the audio_panel_out ref).
There are xplane commands to set the transmit and receive radios in xplane already, feel free to call those commands from your audio panels, or set the datarefs directly. These are all stock datarefs already in xplane, they're not PE specific.
This should simplify the audio panel greatly. The TX setting is completely independent of the RX setting now.
Also, TCAS is now supported through the standard xplane datarefs. This requires you to set your 'other aircraft' to the max number of TCAS targets you want to display (plus 1 since your aircraft is included in the count).
The next thing I'm hoping to add is volume support since I believe those datarefs now exist on a per radio basis.
