Here are the main changes:
- Complete rewrite of almost the entire code-base into cleaner, more readable and modular code.
- The conversion process has been optimized at every step, with a big overall speed increase.
- The input image has moved from the main panel into a new widget, plus lots of other UI changes.
- Batch conversion has been completely rewritten with a new and more usable interface.
- The settings form and the whole settings system have been rewritten, and it now automatically saves to a new data file when you press ok.
- Several memory leaks have been fixed, as have all known bugs.
- Added support for handling multiple translation files.
