Version 0.3.4 released (considered stable)

After months of preparing the next version of branch 0.3, I want to announce the availability of the latest stable version – 0.3.4.
This version aims to provide the most stable version of RIOT since the beginning of this project.
The most important fix addresses the infamous Vista SP2 access violation after displaying the save dialog. This error occurs only in the DLL version (IrfanView plugin). Users of the standalone application never experienced that.

This new version offers some nice speed improvements when working with JPEG and PNG, it corrects a series of bugs and provides some features like the full screen view, improved save functions, extended support for Photoshop PSD files.
