Preview 2:

* The option to display offsets in either hexadecimal or decimal has been moved to the Notation settings. As such, you can have for example hexadecimal offsets in the GUI when using the application, but decimal offsets for example when exporting data from the directory browser for external use.

* Hexadecimal numbers and code can now optionally be written with lower-case letters from a through f. This affects hexadecimal offsets, the hex column, hash value display and more, and this is another option in the Notation settings.

* Relevance computation revised. The number of bits per pixel in a JPEG picture now has an effect on the computed relevance so that rather monotonous and blurred pictures get a lower score.

* The average number of bits per pixel in an actual JPEG picture in Details mode is now accompanied by the known median value of bits per pixel for the same generator signature to put it into perspective.

* Several minor improvements.
