Excuse my confusion, but obviously there is a reason why I can no longer target a spotter or fighter launched by an enemy ship.
Until 0.8.0 it was Ctrl+LMouse click on the airborne symbol, but now it doesn't work...even tho' the in-game HELP instruction still refers to it.

Is this no longer an option or, if it is still available, is there a new key combo?

You can no longer lock onto a singular aircraft or squadron. What you can do is choose a side of your ship (half-and-half, split down the length of the vessel) to "boost" the AA on. The opposite side suffers an AA decrease, but the AA boost on the strengthened side makes up for it when shooting aircraft down.

The default key is 'N' I beleive.

I think 'N' is for horn and 'O' is for sector reinforcement

I think you have to have the fighter consumable. Only dive bombers and rocket palnes  have the fighter escort.

You csn use the tilda (~) key as well to assign AA concentration.  There is no more manual AA like you describe from pre-0.8.0.

That sounds more right. Thanks for the correction.

I am hesitant to ask Wargaming to update anything at this point given what is going on and their recent track record.

This is one of the most frustrating aspects of the new AA system, which is chock full of frustrating things for players to enjoy.

Micro adjustments/inputs in game (i.e. Control Click) was to be rewarded, as it is used more efficiently. Now, it is all gone. 

Welcome to the "participation trophy" era ladies and gentlemen. Wargaming, have indeed caught up with the times proper.

A couple CC Youtubers put out videos before the patches and the day of, to explain the changes (Notser does them quickly).  I would encourage you to check them out.
