V 0.21

I first release this version as beta, but I will make it a release if no real problems pop up. Because of the number of bugs fixed.
But every change introduces new bugs. ;D

# New: In the task view, an extra column added for the actual runtime percentage.
# New: In the task view, a color option if the runtime % is below or above 50%. A color setting in the color menu.
# Changed: In the task view, added a day indicator before (elapsed) time.
# Changed: In the task view, changed the time alignment to the right.
# Fixed: In the project view, the percentage in the non combined mode was way off.
# Fixed: The taskbar icon way not removed after exiting.
# Fixed: In the task view, The message Updating in the project column did not disappear. The name/project name resolve routines are revised.
# Fixed: In the message view, if the log was too long a couple of invalid entries (doubles) would appear.
# Fixed: In the project view, in the non combined mode, the properties were displayed incorrect.


V 0.23

# New: When BoincTasks starts, check if the BOINC client is running, if not start it. Only possible for the localhost. As an option in the setting dialog. (marked as experimental)
# New: Waiting counter in the non combined mode.
# New: Colors for suspended: CPU and GPU.
# Changed: At startup, the Task view is shown faster.
# Changed: While in the (non) combined window the computer->Show menu was not active, only the icon.
# Changed: If there is a password provided for localhost, use it, otherwise read it from the local password file.
# Changed: Finally found a way to get around most of the annoying flickering, when the display is updated.
# Changed: Use the manual time override (in the dialog), for refreshing in all views.
# Fixed: A memory leak (potential crash) when BoincTasks was closed immediately after startup.
# Fixed: In the preference dialog, settings where sometimes lost. Added to the dialog: preference -> processor and network: time/day override, and everything else that was missing.
# Fixed: When adding a computer, the password hide **** was in the port location.
# Fixed: Filtering ready to start tasks, that are suspended. Are now displayed as suspended.
# Fixed: In the non combined mode, task view: Selecting and changing the mode, e.g. suspend sometimes changes another task than the one selected. Affects only the non combined mode.
