CycleAtlas 1.3 (development) released

CycleAtlas is a cycling diary based on a custom road atlas that can display maps, profiles and route time tables of rides.
This release completes some previous missing features, like rides archive storage; basic rides data managed (date, distance, time, etc) as soon as lookup data (bike, weather, etc), with custom values. Support for km or miles units.
The 3D viewer TerrainVis, developed by Martin Barbisch, has been integrated in order to obtain 3D map views.
Some changes in the road map layer, with options for hide roads/nodes and customize route painting; options for node label alignment and for display roads using spline lines.
Added a new layer that is able to display one or more raster images, that can be added/removed at runtime.
Added a preference dialog that replaces configuration files.
It is now possible to manually set road partial distances between nodes.
Road profiles can be obtained by sampling at three different resolutions. Routes profiles can be displayed with more or less details, in order to reduce profile noise. Export profile image function added.
