Classycle 1.2 has a bunch of new features.

Most of the new features of Classycle 1.2 belongs to the DependencyChecker:
1. Using and defining properties in the dependency definition files.
2. Checking whether sets are empty or not (useful for revealing spelling errors in set definitions).
3. Checking absence of large class/package cycles.

In addition it is now possible to merge inner classes with their outer class. Thus, purely inner class cycles are no longer listed in the report.
