Big Update on Projects and Polishing

In the past weeks I've really been focusing on finishing off the Projects feature for the upcoming 1.4 release. Projects can now be opened from the command-line as well as via drag-n-drop, the file list in the project gets refreshed automatically, projects gained references to automapping rules and object type definitions. And last but not least, there is now a shortcut to quickly open any file in the project by typing its name.

In the meantime, there were also some really great suggestions that I decided to implement right away. The tile selection highlight is more visible now that it has a non-transparent border and there is a small button to toggle the Console view on/off in the status bar.

See below for full list of changes since the last snapshot.
