Saladin 1.0 released

Version 1.0 of Saladin is available for download. The most important and visible change is a completely redesigned, modern user interface, which includes a new toolbar layout, new icons drawn by Łukasz Grabowski, dark and white themes and a compact mode in which the toolbar is collapsed into a menu bar. Now you will have more room than ever for working with your files.
