Please test aircrafts using canvas against "next"

Canvas is FlightGear's new fully scriptable 2D drawing system that will allow you to easily create new instruments, HUDs and even GUI dialogs and custom GUI widgets, without having to write C++ code and without having to rebuild FlightGear.

Hi,

the canvas api.nas file was split into several files for better maintainability in future.
Please note that this is not a functional change so no change or errors are expected, but for QA I kindly ask aircraft developers to test their aircrafts against the lastest version of fgdata (also FG version "next" or nightly build) and report if I missed something.

Thanks
Henning

Yes, the files are loaded via io.include.
Btw. if you have "good code" (tm) in your aircraft that could be usefull also for other aircrafts, drop me a line and it may be included into fgdata.
Same, if you feel something is missing and should be added
