WhatPulse 2.4.1b2

RE: WhatPulse 2.4.1b2
Hi,

Just wanted to let you guys know what's happening..I fixed a lot of stuff so far and was actually ready to give you another build. My Windows 7 development machine is kinda dying (weird errors, building the client sometimes fails) and is due for a replacement. While I put a Windows 8.1 machine in place to replace Windows 7, it kinda came clear I had to upgrade to Qt5 from Qt4, the current Qt framework WhatPulse is built on.

I tried this once before and was not satisfied with the dependancies it needs. It needs 21 dll files of around 22MB total. I was unable to cut it down then, so reverted back to Qt4.

Now that I can't really get around it, especially as Qt4 has some unresolved nasty bugs that some people here are hitting, I want to do something about the dependancies.

To do that, 2 things need to be reworked; viewing update releasenotes (when there's a new version and you can read the things changed) and the facebook login. The first one has already been done, that was quite easy. The facebook login needs to change drastically, as the 'browser' inside the client needs to disappear.

Doing that, I can cut it down to about 5 dll files of 5MB.

I'm gonna go for a 'psuedo' password type thing, where you get a generated password from the website if you're using facebook login and you'll need to input that generated password to login to the client.

So that's going to take maybe a week or 1,5..after which I'll release it to you guys. Probably going to rename it to 2.5 as well, as things stand, it's not so much of a maintenance release anymore. ;-)

Thanks!
