FS9 alpha client v0.9.1a released

Joining the FSX client, the FS9 client has now been added to the line up.

We'll soon have a unified installer that will allow both versions to exist alongside the original Squawkbox 4 installation, allowing users to get up and running more easily, and to switch more gracefully between SB4 and SB_PE.

Still, I think users would rather get online sooner rather than later, hence the early alpha release.

V0.9.1a released today:
- v0.9.1a: added support for .sm9/.smx packages. Aircraft packages are loaded in alphabetical order regardless of stated priority. Added pe.sm9 package, adding support for many of the FS9 stock aircraft.

To upgrade from V0.9a, you can either go through the full install (overwriting the dll's again), or simply copy the new exe over the old one and copying the new aircraft/pe.sm9 file into your Squawkbox/aircraft folder (alongside the sb.sms and vip.sms files).

Known issue added:
- running as a module and connecting in a high traffic area might cause the sim to freeze. The workaround is to run the standalone pilot client rather than the module, OR, connect outside of the service area (somewhere where there are essentially no other aircraft) then relocate to your intended airport
