GNOME Sensors Applet Version 2.2.0 Released

This is the first stable release of GNOME Sensors Applet to contain the new plugin system, where all interface specific code are contained in separate dynamically loadable modules. This allows 3rd-party plugins to be built against, and used with GNOME Sensors Applet. This also allows runtime memory to be reduced, since only those plugins which are supported by the system are kept in memory.

This release also fixes a number of smaller bugs, please see the ChangeLog for full details.

NOTE: Previous configurations of GNOME Sensors Applet are not compatible with this new version and so instances of the applet will need to be first removed and then re-added to the panel before use.
