Major Upgrade to Beta of next version released

I have just uploaded version 1.2.3a of Pi Presents to [pipresents-next]

This is a major revision responding to the many suggestions that you have made. It has a web browser, a much enhanced menushow, and ‘plugins’ which allow you to write Python code to implement dynamic displays.

My thanks to all who have provided ideas for improvement, keep them coming.
