GNUmed mobile edition updated to version 0.4.5

The GNUmed mobile edition has been updated to client 0.4.5 and server v10.5

What is the mobile edition you might ask ? GNUmed mobile edition is a carefully crafted version that requires no local installation. It is a Windows version that is installed (copied to) a removable drive such as a USB drive. It can then be started from that drive in (hopefully) any Windows-Computer on the go. The data is stored on the removable drive as well.

While updating I have not simply updated GNUmed but added some features as well.

1.) The GNUmed client is integrated with the PortableApps laucher
2.) The PortablePostgres systray launcher is intergrated with the PortableApps launcher
3.) The PortablePostgres systray launcher provides access to the portable PG config files
4.) PortablePostgres is configured to run on port 5433 rather than 5432 so it will run alongside a locally running PostgreSQL. Useful for backup/restore feature
5.) Client size has been reduced to 25MB from 88MB
6.) Server Size has been reduced to 171 MB from 288MB

On my todo list:
1.) show active/inactive status for PostgreSQL through colored systray icon
2.) add backup/restore scripts specifically for GNUmed for pre/post house call situations
3.) Talk to Karsten about display option of server one is connected to in the GNUmed window
