new and updated mx-apps

mx-conky provides a method for doing simple edits to conky files (color changes, etc...)
mx-network-assistanct replaces mx-broadcom-manager as a general purpose network troubleshooting tool.
mx-tools now has a larger interface
changes to the update mananger (apt-notifier), including new themes available in preferences
misc. changes to most of the other mx-apps
the applications menu now has a mx-tools submenu to help organize the menu a little bit.
gthumb replaces shotwell and mirage (both still available in mx-packageinstaller)
featherpad, a qt-based text editor with tabbed interface and code markup, replaces leafpad.
new art work and icons (current wallpaper is not final, just being used for beta 1 release)
several pre-packaged conky configurations (see conky-manager to change and select)
Known Issues

The manual has not yet been updated for MX-17.
Translations are not yet complete for the new mx-apps and some are still being updated.
Some testers during alpha reported shutdown problems when using the encrypted home option. We have included a fix, but it has received limited testing.
