VRC 1.3.0 released

VRC 1.3.0 is now available via the website or through the automatic update in the client.

:warning: As previously announced in March 2021, VRC is end-of-life. Facilities should continue moving to newer clients (CRC, EuroScope, vatSys). :warning:
We may continue to issue infrequent updates to VRC in order to ensure it can continue to operate on the network. New features, except for security and operational updates, will not be added to VRC.
