Backround Cycler version 6 Progress report.

What is going on with Backround Cycler version 6?
Upgrades to the user interface are slow, some of the features that I use in the winforms version are just not present in WPF. This is leaving me the need to extend a lot of the WPF classes. WPF is a challenging framework, but fun to learn.

I am about 50% complete with the GUI upgrades. I had to step back and pull apart the source code to version 5, because I had an e-mail with a bug report. After investigating in talking to the user, I had determined that it was a problem on his and not mine.

So far few things I like about the upgrades to this program are, it looks better, I have better control over how it's displayed (pragmatically).
