BORG 1.5.1 Beta Released

There are only 2 active developers right now on the project - Mohan and myself. Both of us have added features and bug fixes lately and don't have time to do much more right now. So, here is release 1.5.1 beta. We have not had the chance to document all of the new features and I'm not sure how long it will be before we do. Some features are simple to use - like the new hover tooltips, keyboard shortcuts, search, and right-click context menus. Some are still crying out for documentation - like the new remote server. Users can feel free to post questions on the forums - they will be answered.

File-based users (that's most people), feel free to upgrade to 1.5.1b without much concern.
MySQL users - there were some tricky db changes, and running an upgrade script is required. If you don't feel comfortable that you could save your existing DB and revert back to release 1.5 if needed, then you might want to wait for others to shake out any problems.
A MySQL upgrade of a large db from BORG 1.5 to 1.5.1 beta was tested on a CentOS Linux box, but only lightly.
