This is one of the most requested, finally available, feature. -The grid layout editor can now also be used to give different names to metadata fields. This way we can give more suitable names to reflect the information we really enter in these fields. -Added possibility to redirect disks root path to another path that can be a UNC, http, ftp,...path.
