Update checker

NXTCamView will now check the Sourceforge RRS release feed to see if a newer version is available. It won't actually download, but at least you'll know its there. This can be turn off.

First upload

I have uploaded the first alpha release of NXTCamView together with its source code. As you can see from the version number there have been a few releases already so its quite functional (at least enough to use it). If anyone has any suggestions please add them to the tracker.
