APP 2.0.4.0 beta released

This is the second release of Auto Project Planner 2. It's still a beta version, but feature complete from the calculation point of view. Predecessors, Finish with Task, Max%/Task, Max%/Worker, Productivity and Training Time could be set and is considered in calculation. There is still something to do in Error Handling before I make a first official release.

This is the first release of Auto Project Planner 2 - the next generation of the software. It's a beta version, not feature complete and it does not provide any error handling. So please be carful using it (save often ;-)) and if possible provide feedback to me.

Best regards,
