LX-Viewer Version 098 released

This is the first "stable" version that uses the QT 3.0.5 and OpenDWG 2.008 libraries. Biggest new feature from 0.96 is the reporting (located under the file menu).

We have also removed the ability to save as an XPM format file and replaced it with a save to PNG format file. PNG files are very compressed where XPM are just the opposite.

There is also a reporting feature now available. The reporting can be set to open report on all drawing files in a directory using command line arguments.

Changes include the ability to now specify the dxf file version to be saved, and it is also no longer necessary to supply an output file name. There are now also some help files bundled with the package.
