Cool Version 1.0.1.5

Hello.

We have released new version of our tool RAD & Installer. New version 1.0.1.5. Changes:

[+] New feature Go To File (similar to Open File at Cursor): opening included files (.nsh) from IDE with Ctrl + Click (not Ctrl + Enter!)
[+] Added new tooltips for !include "filename.nsh" elements with details and references.
[+] New Settings option Save script files before Building/Compiling the Project (default is On) for .nsi and .nsh scripts. Script files are automatically saved before Build/Compile (if invoked via Keyboard Shortcuts)[*] Removed spaces in NSIS Project Templates (Improved project creating, Increased security)[*] Default output name was changed to $safeprojectname$ (which is project name without spaces, invalid characters etc. in NSIS installers) instead of default 'setup.exe' to prevent DLL hijacking (Increased security)
[+] Enhanced Syntax Highlighting for NSIS scripts. Syntax is more colourful with many rich options, better items recognition and tweaked colors (for Light themes at this moment).
[+] Support for NSIS 3.0 (Final version - no more Beta or RC!, see changes)
[+] Support for NSIS 3.0 RC2 (see changes)
[+] Support for GI for NSIS 4.4.01 (Patka) and Graphical Installer Wizard 1.8.01 (see changes)
[+] Implemented checking for latest NSIS release and downloading updated version (can be turned On/Off in Settings dialog).[*] Fixed AV Exception on closing bds.exe when Tip of the Day (or any other) form was shown and closed prematurely[*] Sanity check for TWebBrowser component (causing issues on certain Internet Explorer configurations).
[+] Implemented Run last Build for NSIS projects. As Run (F9) or Run Without Debugging (Shift + Ctrl + F9) cannot be used for compilation (projects need to be fully Build) these keyboard shortcuts launch last succesfully built installer (if exists).
