The main change in this patch is the addition of two spacecalls to allow ships to roll about their direction of travel. This change now allows total freedom of orientation of ships. You will need to write a 'roll' command, and to update the status pages as you see fit to return roll information.
The second change is the addition of an 'enable_console' spacecall which allows consoles to be deactivated. This is a good thing to do to save CPU time if you don't want messages to be emitted to it. It (currently) has no effect other than disabling hardcode console-type broadcast emits.
This patch also updates the gun handling code so that the maximum range emitted if the target is out of range is adjusted for the CF_RANGE_FACTOR.
NOTE: See the information about S71115 for the changes needed to support the new console arrangements which are also in this release.
