Gap5 1.2.0 released

A new release of Gap5 has been made - version 1.2.0.

*NOTE* this is binary incompatible with the gap5 databases produced in 1.1.3 and earlier, but this break was made in order to produce a substantially (sometimes 10 fold) reduction in database size. The new format allows room for tweaking too without invalidating old gap5 databases, so hopefully file formats changing shoudn't be a problem in the future.

The other main features are improved input/output file handling (in particular ACE files) and a start on tags/annotations and library tracking. Both of these are stub features - they are in the gap5 database but visualisation needs more work yet. These are likely to appear shortly in later 1.2.x versions.
