Hello folks. Tomorrow I must travel so I am sending what was done up until today for this week's release:

Fixes:
* PCA Weapons selection/deselection.
* VTB Weapons display.

* TAS ranging.

Additions:
* CCRP Auto release (explained below).
* New Keyboard mappings:
- PCA Select button for HOTAS.
- Magic Slave/AG Designate/INS Position Update button for HOTAS (No, Magic slave is not enabled yet.)
- Stores 5 SELECT button for WEAPONS MANAGEMENT (PCA).

Updates:
* Manual update. Last page includes a manual changelog.
* Keyboard mappings:
- HOTAS Cannon SELECT is now: HOTAS AA Gun Select.
- HOTAS Magic II SELECT is now: HOTAS Magic II SELECT.

- FLIGHT CONTROL Airbrake OFF is now: HOTAS Airbrake OFF.

- WEAPONS MANAGEMENT Gun Mode SELECT is now: WEAPONS .MANAGEMENT AG Gun SELECT.

* Buttons Functionality:
- HOTAS STT/TWS Toggle (Target Lock): Now only works in AA mode. It cannot be used to designate ground targets anymore.
- HOTAS Magic Slave/AG Designate/INS Position Update: Is the button to be used to designate ground targets. Other functionalities are not available at this time.

CCRP Autorelease
Now we have enabled CCRP bomb automatic release. The CCRP instructions have been updated in the manual but just in case:
When in CCRP, the trigger instead of releasing the bombs, now functions as a release consent switch.

1. You must press the trigger as soon as you see the release cue.
2. Keep the trigger pressed for as long as the cue is in the HUD. The bombs will be automatically released when the cue crosses the diamond reticle center.

The CCRP target will clear when:
a. A bomb(s) has been released.
b. The cue is over the diamond reticle if no bomb has been released.

TAS is working and precision has improved. It still needs some work. But now bombs are hitting in elevation, even if they miss on azimuth (to the left or right).
