Appupdater 0.8 Released

I know there are some issues with the GUI in this release, but I wanted to get it out so that I could get the many improvements out that users have been asking for. I don't anticipate problems with any of the other components.

Version 0.8

- Changed default APPS XML file to metalink on nabber.org
- Proxy support added
- Support for UNIX/Linux/MAC OS platforms
- GUI no longer hangs (threaded)
- Updated inventory code
- Added display of where a program is installed with info
- Fixed run.pid file issues
- Looks for ./config.ini, ./appupdater.ini, ~/.appupdater.ini, and /etc/appupdater.ini
- Uses more specific method of grabbing tags in XML
- Moved cache directory to lib directory (Windows EXE) or TEMP
- Dependency version number support
- NSIS Memento support to remember selections during re-install/upgrade
- Allows for .metalink files instead of .xml now
- Better handling of download printouts on command line
- Created Daemon for UNIX use, should be cross platform
