Two new and interesting releases today. RunIT-QT upgrades to 0.5. and Vol2x upgrades to QT5.
RunIT-QT has gone through code cleanup and now it uses only the modules it needs. Both, have a new outlook and they come with icons also.

Also, there is plenty of new code: Vol2x-QT5 and RunIT-QT 0.5 each have well over 1000 lines.
RunIT-QT 0.5 brings outlook and usability upgrades.
