Timba Release 0.28

This release ensures we can play 24/7 on the latest Android versions too.
Older Android versions can enjoy improved mouse interaction in TimbaPlay (especially while seeking in media using the scrollbar) as well as being even more resilient to failures in media handling.

FAT patent free!

In Europe the Microsoft FAT patent has been ruled as invalid. This is good new for all embedded applications where this file system is used (including Android!). Now, I have been anti patents, especially when it comes to software patents.

Right now the companies who used to do the most work for the invention and manage to keep the status quo are the winners.
