Version 7.5BETA15

1. Made some minor changes to TMP102 interface functions
2. Changed TMP102 detection sequence to allow more start-up delay
3. Added timeout counter - autopilot triggered if no PPM data - could cause problems for people not using PPM
4. Modified the PPM-frame qualifier
5. Changed VSI limit to 33m/s (or about 100ft/s)
6. Changed I2C error handling to not halt rest of system
7. Changed RCON handling
8. Added timeout to WAITACK and reinstated WAITACK
9. Changed temperature computation for TMP102 left-justified format
10. Added reset command to TMP102 initialization
11. Removed PPM qualifiers instated in V7.2
12. Removed AP activation on missing PPM
13. Changed WAITACK for longer timeout
14. Change TMP102 initialization parameters
15. Added GPS augmentation to stabilizer (highly experimental)
16. Fixed baro related timing bug
17. Removed unused items from menu
18. Changed terminal baudrate to 115200
19. Added new terminal data exchange protocol and commands
20. Added separate gain setting for GPS stabilizer
21. Expanded new protocol command set
22. Refined current sensing algorithm
23. Minor changes to autopilot default values
24. Changed syntax of serial commands

Note this version will revert to default settings so if you want to retain them, please copy them down somewhere.

Note also that from BETA14 onwards, you should change your ds30 Loader to indicate 115200 baud (instead of 38400) on the RESET and the TERMINAL tabs.
