o Added ShapeX, ShapeY, ShapeZ functions to the Field Calculator for point shapes.
o Sorted the function list in Field Calculator.
o Corrected the Greek Grid projection definition.
o Added a "/resettodefaults" command line option which deletes the two main configuration files, thereby restoring defaults.
o Bug Fix - Key presses in the docked legend editor are caught by the map and therefore pans around and prompts to remove layers inappropriately.
