Change Log for Micro Core v2.9

Release Candidate 1
* Updated tce-load - added support for recursive dependencies.
* Updated tc-config - persistent home and/or opt, changed ext only support to not Microsoft file system support.
* Updated ab to use tmp work files.
* Improved language support by auto loading locale support extension(s) when both "lang=  " and the "-locale.tcz" extension(s) are available in tce/optional.
* Clean up of reported relics and empty directories.
* Updated f2 & f3 boot message screens.
* Renamed *.core.gz to simply *.gz for ISO9660 compliance.
* Fixed bug in tce-update easy mode.
* Dropped the embedded help file.

Notes:

Attention extension makers, please test the new recursive dependency process, but hold in abeyance until v2.9 is final.

Release Candidate 2

* Upgraded busybox to stable 1.15.3
* Upgraded udev to 151.
* Upgraded tce-load and appsaudit to support copy2fs flag and list in the base tce directory.
* Updated OnDemand to also support re-launching applicatons. Now one can always use the OnDemand menu section.
* Updated support for easy mode remastering /opt/tce now uses onboot.lst
* Updated tc-config to also make, if necessary, optional directory when tce= boot code is used.
* Added cache, .logo.xpm, and stats.txt to default /opt/.xfiletool.lst
* Updated  /opt/.xfiletool.lst to persist OnDemand menu item across reboots via normal backup.


Notes: Files likely in your backup that need updating:
The following have been added to the default /opt/.xfiletool.lst:

cache
home/tc/.wmx/Applications
home/tc/.logo.xpm
home/tc/stats.txt

Note also that there is a new Xprogs.gz for the changes to control panel and appsaudit.

..as an added bonus, if you list the name of an extension in an extension dep file by mistake (eg gtk2.tcz in gtk2.tcz.dep), tce-load segfaults to highlight your error  :)
