NEW: Projects can now be saved in a new Flapjack-specific binary format (at

NEW: Redesigned the Import Dialog to include all options (map/genotype data, 
     traits, and QTL) in a single tabbed display.

     option checkbox for it is selected).
NEW: Added an additional new tab to support opening example projects from the 
     web server.
NEW: Split the additional options from the map/genotype importing dialog into a

NEW: Updated the line similarity code to score 1 for a homozygous match, and 0.5
