Another RDPManager Release

I have released another RDPManager package. This one has minor bug fixes, and the ability to edit the connection statistics for any machine. The new Most Used feature (at the top of the Recent menu) relies on connection statistics to determine what machines show up there. Using the new dialog, you can promote a machine to this list or demote a machine if you have one you don't like in there. You can find this new edit function under About, Connection Statistics, and the select a machine and then you can click Edit or Clear. Edit will let you change things, while Clear resets the selected machine to 0.

New Version 1.30

Changes in version 1.30
* minor bug fixes
* Added version check
* Displayname is used in the filename instead of MachineName. This affects what is shown in the task bar for the session
* Changed the Manual Connect dialog box to display the options on there instead of another dialog
* Added a Clear List button on the manual connect dialog box
* Fixed various bugs in the options of the Manual Connection.
* Display bugs fixed in the Password Management dialog
* If an error is introduced in an XML file while editing, the program will not error and exit, it
will error and revert to the previous config.
* When adding credentials in the Password Management dialog box, the selection for the machine name the credentials apply to is a drop down box of machines in the config file(s) instead of typing it in.
* Added the ability to open multiple hosts with one entry. See the entry on RDPMultiConnections in the README.TXT file
* Manual connection options default to .XML file settings
* Changed machine-password paring to pair off of DisplayName instead of MachineName.
This means entries can have the same MachineName but different DisplayNames, allowing
multiple entries to the same machine but with different options.
