We do have plans for a further update which will add some more changes, including changes to the NAV/COMM1 and NAV/COMM2 assignment of third-party GPS products.

Note for repaint users: this update replaces your "aircraft.cfg" file so the existing copy will be backed-up in the same directory as "aircraft.cfg.18.9.29.bak".
