Version 1.0.3 for Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2

Released on 2016-12-18

[12-18-16] -Inline-patched to clean up cloned configs and to recognize when player has RO installed -Stock now has attitude jets for backshell -Possible fixed issue with CTD when player places the cruise stage on another part. GPU/CPU might be the bottleneck for some players. Possible polycount was too high for low-end machines. -Fixed decoupling when going through strong aero forces, however player must angle craft a bit before ejection to prevent "back splash" of heatshield and/or backshell. The real Curiosity mission had to do this same manuever. -Fixed stock cruise stage to now have resource monoprop.
