Release Name: 1.3

This new release of Maemo Mapper gets a new minor
number due to the drastically rewritten download
mechanism.  The old gnome-vfs-async mechanism has
been replaced with libcurl3.  Advantages are
improved reliability, especially when using slower
download servers.

The major functional change in this release is
support for WMS, which in part prompted the use
of libcurl3, since WMS servers (specifically
terraserver) were proving to be a problem for
gnome-vfs-async.  See the MM-Extensions page
(link below) for example URL Formats.

Note that you must install proj in order for
WMS downloads to work.  proj is available
alongside flite in the "Utilities" category of
the Maemo Garage repository.  proj is _not_
required if you are not planning on downloading
WMS maps via Maemo Mapper.  (You can still view
them fine without proj, as well.)

Changes: * Re-wrote download mechanism to use libcurl3 instead of gnome-vfs-async. * Added support for WMS maps.
