Pilot JSON File and Controls5
This is a notice that there are currently issues in the nightlies in that the pilot files are one-way converted to version 4.  Since our pilot code doesn't know how to handle newer versions, FSO version 21.4 and older chokes on the new pilot and at best hides it from the pilot selection list.

We have a github project set up to try to tackle this issue: https://github.com/scp-fs2open/fs2open.github.com/projects/11

Re: Pilot JSON File and Controls5
We've settled on keeping the default bindings within the pilot file so that Pre-Controls5 builds won't choke on the pilot.  At worst they'll hide the pilot from the collection screen and at best they'll have the pilot available but the controls will be reset to defaults.
