What's New in This Release:-Internal automation engine has been completely revamped to run more smoothly and provide more functionality
-Automation window has changed in several ways to look aesthetically pleasing and provide more functionality: color scheme changed, window placed on right side of screen and is offset by a specific amount of pixels, so as not to interfere with other tasks, and the window becomes semi-transparent when the mouse is not hovered over it
-Fixed major bug where AVERT may run improperly on a 64 bit operating systems

-Individual fixes have been removed from the automation process and given their own tab under 'Tools'
