Droid Explorer 0.9.0.4 Released

This is a pretty big release for being a maintenance release. There are some bug fixes and a couple new features.

New Features:

Sqlite files are now edited using Sqlite Browser. This tool is far more stable, and advanced than the tool that was included before in Droid Explorer. The way this tool works, the database that you want to query/modify will be copied to your PC. You can query or modify the data. Once you close the Sqlite Browser, it will ask you if you want to push the changes back to the device.

ScreenCast is now called Screen Monitor and now uses a fork of Android Screen Monitor. The fork just removes the need to have the user select the device, since Droid Explorer already knows the device.

Screen Capture: This allow you to record your device screen for up to 3 minutes.

Rotation is done when you copy the video to the PC. This uses FFMpeg to do the rotation.
