*ADDED: Created a library (which however doesn’t use pure C++ but relies on Qt4) from the old source code
*ADDED: The first time the application runs it prompts the user about the built-in auto backup feature.
*ADDED: Default Entry is now highlighted and explicitly declared as Default
*ADDED: New setting: the user may select the highlight color
*FIXED: Utilised the at(x) function instead of the [] operator in the vectors to slightly improve speed (only where applicable)
