Major Upgrade to Beta of next version released

I have just uploaded version 1.2.2a of Pi Presents to [pipresents-next]

This is a major revision responding to the many suggestions that you have made. It has two new show types, many improvements to the players, and the beginnings of a system that will allow additional input and output devices to be added.
