This is the initial workshop release.

The following changes have been made to the extensions and addon:
1. The extension has been simplified. It makes less decisions and functions solely as a transport conduit between the SQF and the Athena Relay
2. The SQF has been changed to generate the Athena 'Frames' entirely in ARMA by using a mostly static array and very specify 'EachFrame' routines for gather updated unit positions

The following changes have been made to the relay, application and the acs:
1. The socket protocols have been simplified and made more efficient
2. The requirement that each component function as both a server and a client has been removed. Only the relay and acs function as socket 'servers' and the application functions merely as a client.
