Release 20130326

This release contains a few small items... UI improvements and bug fixes.

Most usefully I've added better feedback to fix buttons. Now, after pressing them, they should change colour to indicate success or failure. In the case of failure, more detail about the problem will be shown in a popup attached to the button.

A couple of improvements for cover art resizing. First, the algorithm used to shrink images has been refined so that cropping is avoided. In some cases, with some resolutions, images would be cropped slightly either on the horizontal or vertical axis. This shouldn't occur anymore. In addition, when you had configured rules for both the maximum resolution and data size for album art the fixes were being combined into one button. This meant when you clicked the button the artwork was resized twice. This no longer occurs.

I've also cleared up some duplicated items that used to appear in the Inbox...

New users should download the new release from the downloads page.

Existing users can update bliss from within the application. Updating is improving to the extent it now appears possible to update without restarting, in most cases. If this doesn't work for you let me know, and if the update appears to break things, here's what to do. You can also download the latest installer and install it, replacing the current installation.

Your existing fixes will be retained!
