modernised app-V server user interface.
Consolidated client logging (improved)

Application compatibility

NEW Advanced package editor abilities
Expanded Copy-on Write to support more file extensions
Environment variables are merged in Connection Groups

Package Editor Enhancements

Virtual File System
Package manifest can be exported and imported
can import a directory of files in VFS (Finally!!)
File export/import allows updating VFS without deleting & re-adding

I am looking forward to testing the new bits in the Package Editor.
