Drag'n'drop Support for Images

You can drag and drop images and svg images directly to components. New Image or SVGImage resource wil be created automatically and assigned to the component. This increases usability of the product.

Custom Components Fixies

The TableItem custom component had problems on some devices. The issues has been solved. Due to huge variety or different java implementations on devices the issue can't be fixed completelly... There is new class ColorSchema for defining colors of TableItem, WaitScreen and SplashScreen. It can solve issue with colors on certain devices.

Version of MVD Document Increased

There were uncompatible changes (new components, new properties, fixies) therefore visual designer files created in builds after Beta2 builds cannot be opened in "older" builds. Visual design files from previous version will be automatically converted to new format when they are opened in IDE. User will be warned about this change.
