Minor Kapow release

I just made a bugfix release of Kapow, version 1.3.5, that fixes some minor bugs as well as a potentially serious data loss bug: it was not fully checking to make sure that it could actually read or write its data file. I have thankfully only heard of a single user that this bug may have affected. A Danish translation was also added by Rasmus Blomqvist.

With this release I am moving to a new release process for all of my projects that is similar to how larger projects work. From now on patch releases (1.3.5, 1.3.6, etc) will only contain bug fixes or translation updates, and no new features. I was not doing this before because of the overhead of maintaining more than one branch, but I think that it is better way to do things despite the headaches it may cause me. For the sake of my sanity I will only be maintaining a single stable release line at a time for each project.

    I’m saddened to see this release doesn’t include any of the fixes we’ve been discussing in the issue tracker.

    With that said, this release fails by default because it doesn’t include mingwm10.dll and libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll

    Those were all features, and therefore they will not be available until the next feature release.

    Oops, I didn’t realize that I had not updated the windows deploy script. I will make a new Windows release shortly. I have now made a new Windows build, version 1.3.5.1, that includes the missing libraries.
