Base Technology Update to RAP 2.0 M1

The most important change in this release is the support for RAP 2.0 M1. This change requires some minor updates in existing code. An update guide is available. Be sure to update your target (available at: http://developer.eclipsesource.com/technology/tabris/downloads/0.7/) !

Video Support

Tabris now supports native playback of videos. This features is implemented as a custom widget in the Tabris API. It adds a new widget com.eclipsesource.tabris.widgets.Video that lets you embed a video file (H.264) from any URL into your application. On-screen controls, fullscreen and other bells and whistles that you would expect from a state-of-the-art video player are implemented and ready to be used in your App.
