Change log as posted on the developers website:
-------------------------------------------------------
We've sent the new version 1.007 to the distributors. Please update your version of the software, upon reception of the notification from your store

Changes from 1.006 are:
SYSTEMS

FMS
+ Numerous approach selection fixes (approach types will be identified correctly)
+ Fixed the airways selection
+ Fixed the approach points sequencing logic
+ Approach mode HSI sensitivity is up 50%
+ SIDs will be filtered correctly, based on the runway (ex. LFPG with too many listed SIDs)
+ NAV page will be updated upon the SID selection, or FP deletion
+ Fixed the Track to Fix logic when the previous wpt is of a dynamic type
+ LNAV and VNAV approach activation method is updated
+ Runway MAP point will lead to the landing zone, not the rwy threshold

Procedural Turn leg will allow for an intermediate waypoint between the
turn zone and the turn reference navaid (some approaches have errors of
this kind (CYQM 06ILS). Only done when flying the approach. Terminal

+
Included the new Nav Data database. Important: the Navigraph Nav

included in the 1.007 database, or re-download your navadata from
Navigraph to obtain the latest

GAUGES:
