pyrf.connectors.twisted_async.TwistedConnector now has a vrt_callback attribute for setting a function to call when VRT packets are received.
This new callback takes a single parameter: a pyrf.vrt.DataPacket or pyrf.vrt.ContextPacket instance.
The old method of emulating a synchronous read() interface from a pyrf.devices.thinkrf.WSA4000 instance is no longer supported, and will now raise a pyrf.connectors.twisted_async.TwistedConnectorError exception.
New methods added to pyrf.devices.thinkrf.WSA4000: abort(), spp(), ppb(), stream_start(), stream_stop(), stream_status()
Added support for stream ID context packets and provide a value for sweep ID context packet not converted to a hex string
