o Added the first few operations to file explorer. 
o Implemented Task Runner UI 
o Integrated ADQL Query Builder with Task runner, and enabled it to operate 
  on catalogues and cea applications. 
o Implemented minimalistic ui for when system tray is not available 

  Fixed bugs:
o Fixes related to entering positions and radii in AstroScope. Only 1-d 
  radius can now be entered; sexagesimal->decimal conversion bugs are 
  fixed; position and radius parsing is more lenient (e.g. permits embedded 
  spaces and leading + signs); and 'sexagesimal' display of radius is now in 
  decimal arcseconds rather than dd:mm:ss.ss. See bugs 1824, 1939, 2185. 
o Improved the way the PLASTIC hub deals with orphaned .plastic files - no 
  more annoying user messages. See bug 2248. 
o remote execution framework consults vomon to choose suitable server 
o Debugged AR ADQL parser 

  Changes:
o Merged tabular metadata viewers used in voexplorer and query builder 
o Reworked remote execution framework

  dave@ast.cam.ac.uk.

  org.astrogrid.desktop.modules.system.HivemindFileSystemManager does not 
  contain a property named 'temporaryFileStore'. Thanks to

  on background threads.

  configuration key docs.

  new version of AdqlStoX: astrogrid.adqlstox.version=2007.2sx Requires new 
  version of adql xmlbeans: astrogrid.adql_v1_0a2.version=1.2-b000xmlbeans 
  Issue: 2152.
