New testing version is here

I rebuilt FR against wxWidgets 2.8.4, with only one small change: In
Ansi build the fr_databases.conf file is saved now with the system
character set. The conversion to and from UTF-8 does not work in the
Ansi build, anyway, so all characters >= 128 (like umlaut chars) where
mangled.

I hope these work for all of you, but please make a backup copy of your
fr_databases.conf file *before* you test the new executables. Please
find them at

http://www.flamerobin.org/mghie/FR_0.7.7_wx2.8.4.zip>

and check them out. Should work much better than the build against CVS
HEAD, and could be a good test for using 2.8.4 for the next official
FlameRobin build.

Thanks for any feedback
