I also updated from CVS this morning and all instruments still work, here. I 
guess that if all instruments and all systems in every aircraft were broken 
then a whole lot of other people would have noticed too.

I have not changed anything in the hunter or any other aircraft.

Try to run Flightgear with --log-level=info and look for these lines:

Reading instruments from data/Aircraft/Generic/generic-instrumentation.xml
Adding subsystem instrumentation
Reading systems from data/Aircraft/Generic/generic-systems.xml
Adding subsystem systems

This is what you should get. If you get something like: "No instrumentation 
model specified for this model!" or "Failed to load instrumentation model: ", 
then something is wrong, obviously.

When Flightgear is running try to browse to this property:
It should contain "data/Aircraft/Generic/generic-instrumentation.xml" if you 
are using the generic configuration, or if you are using a custom made 
configuration it should of course contain the path to that file.

I understand that you are frustrated, but IMHO the ability to configure 
instrumentation and systems is an improvement. I also think that going back 
to them being hardcoded is a step in the wrong direction.
