Importer change log

• [fix]: creating dictionaries with specified order in topics (e.g. defining the rel_order column) could result in incorrect topics order (the rel_order table column was not declared as int). 

• [fix] Importing eSword files could create wrong H1, H2, H3 Strong links if the rtf file contained stylesheets with headings defined with the names H1, H2, H3, etc. 

• [new] Disk files import: the subject can be extracted now from the actual file being imported using a regular expression (for example, the html TITLE tag could be used as the topic subject). 

• [fix] Importing html files from disk caused book module to be unsearchable

• [fix] Applying chapter headings on an .ont file behaves better for multiple headings for the same verse

• [new] If Microsfor Security Essentials is installed and running, eSword conversion may fail ocassionally: this version will improve this by reducing the number of possible errors (this is an issue with MSE so it's hard to fix it completely)

• [new] Fix for importing eSword modules: import would fail if the 'create sql statement' of the db table had columns with no type

• [new] Fix for importing eSword modules: import would fail if the 'create sql statement' of the db table extended in multiple lines

Random verse

For if we believe that Jesus has died and has risen again, so also God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. (For this we say to you in [the] word of [the] Lord, that *we*, the living, who remain to the coming of the Lord, are in no way to anticipate those who have fallen asleep; for the Lord himself, with an assembling shout, with archangel's voice and with trump of God, shall descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then *we*, the living who remain, shall be caught up together with them in [the] clouds, to meet the Lord in [the] air; and thus we shall be always with [the] Lord.   (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17)
