New Beta Version 0.99.1 Released

This release is a second pass at a 1.0 release. It is probably still
more buggy then normal and is thus considered a beta release.

Notable Fixes from 0.99.0:

- replication works again
- fewer things cause an extra window to spawn
- spreadsheet supports problemstatus parameter
- style files work more correctly 
       parameters pass properly
       improper Warnings no longer generated
