Mea culpa, or more to test before going to Nokia Store

So version 1.4 of GAuth wasn't good enough for Nokia Store in the end. Here's a couple of reminders to make sure this doesn't happen again:

  • Nokia Store still tests against PR1.1. It is now impossible for me to do so, without using Remote Device Access (which is a pain, because everything else can be done from my phone - I have a spare phone for testing but I've foolishly upgraded that one to PR1.3 too OTA).
  • Test for new users of your application that it works. Some of my new code was relying upon having settings already there, which of course wasn't the case for new users of the application.
  • Test for upgrading existing users. This is a problem that I hit in the past where I was wiping the settings because I was treating upgrade as uninstall-install.
Version 1.5 is now on GitHub. Existing users who had 1.4 working needn't upgrade.
