Quite a few changes this rev and i am not sure if remember all but here are the
main ones:

*Added a multicolor blend funtion which generates an image using GX and so
doesn't need much memory. This saves ~1.5MB overall global memory since a
background image or progressbar image is no longer needed.
*Background image is now a multicolor blending image (as before but now
generated by GX and not a png). It is made out of 4 colors (corners) which blend
over in each other. You can configure the Colors in the settings and change with
that the background image.
*Changes to Progressbar:
*Made it to a Class/Instance
*Made ProgressBar a multicolor image like the background. The colors can
be configured in the Settings for empty and full progressbar.
*Made Progressbar go up a lot smoother now (drawing each pixel instead
of each 4 pixel).
*The progress speed is now calculated more accurate.
*Next upcoming will be a total progress progressbar below the current
*Added rumble support. Can be disabled in the Settings.
*Added filter for System Files (beginning with "$" or "." and "thumb.db"). Can
be disabled in the Settings.
*Added Reload to orginal Entrace IOS (from HBC) before booting a homebrew
*Changed MusicPlayer "next music playback" code. It no longer uses it's own
thread. Saves one thread.
*Added proper 16:9 resolution/display now (looks weird at first). Please report
wrong aligned elements if i missed some.
*Some fixups and cleanups
*Updated language files
