First version released

This is the first release of Sleutel. The state of the code is basically a starting point for future development. The source code has not been uploaded to subversion yet but is included in the Eclipse generated distributions. In the next few weeks I am hoping to have a reasonably working version.

Final note: this applications requires a Java 5 JRE installed on your system.
