Build 340

GuineuIDE has been enhanced a bit. When you have multiple Project Manager windows open at the same time it can be difficult to figure out which project is currently controlled through the Guineu menu. This has become easier since the project name is now displayed in the menu.

A new option to clean up the project directory has been added. Choosing this option removes all temporary files that GuineuIDE creates in order to build the EXE. Aside from the C# files these are mainly the *.SCX.PRG and *.VCX.PRG file that contain converted versions of the visual files. Use this option after you installed a new build of Guineu or when Guineu isn't picking up any of the changes you make to a visual file.

When your project file contains an icon, this icon is now added to the EXE. Finding your application in File Explorer on the mobile device should now be significantly easier.

Mostly you'll be building the same project type repeatedly during development. After you picked on of the build targets in the Guineu Build menu, this target is added as a shortcut directly to the Guineu menu as the very first item. Repeated builds should be easier this way.

A few bug fixes deal with the conversion of properties. Some color properties where not detected correctly. Also, there was one more issue with long properties that contain double quotes, specifically the _MemberData property. Those are fixed now.
