requested features to the system.

Here is the list of major changes in the system.

sensors running on the same GSN instance.

files, rrd exporter, ...
- Adding dependency graph to load and unload the virtual sensors.
- Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition.

- Complete separation between GSN and the register service.

BTNode Support is available.

After programming the btnodes, we discovered that actually the support for the btnodes can be provided with the existing GenericSerialWrapper. The packet parsing can be performed at the virtual sensor level.
