Nimi Places 20120808 released

With 2G in works, we release newest version of 1G Nimi Places - after over 4 months since last release. Following direction started within previous version, development focused even more on fixing and polishing existing features.

Fixes start from minor GUI modifications (like keyboard actions support for dialogboxes) to archives processing. As for updates and optimizations - those were applied to bottom core features (IO frontend, repaint operations etc.) as well as more visible aspects like dialogboxes.

However, again few features had to be removed - as not to be added in 2G and increasing project complexity beyond required - those include: files & folders collector, container layer selection and hide desktop tweak. As we understand that not every user might be pleased with removal of those features - we highly encourage Those to contact us.
