LedgerSMB 1.4.3 released

Hi everyone,

LedgerSMB 1.4.3 has been released.  There is a significant problem fixed here which everyone should be aware of.  The currency formatting settings moved from per installation to per-company, but the sales tax calculations used the old location and therefore rounded off to the nearest whole currency.  This only affected users of 1.4.0 - 1.4.2.  If anyone has a need to go through and determine what the impacts are for sales tax regulation, please contact me, as I am glad to put some time into helping mitigate this problem.  The issue has been fixed going forward. There are a number of other minor fixes.

We also have a major enhancement, namely the ability to run LedgerSMB via starman with no additional configuration effort (you may still need to configure PostgreSQL, but starman's configuration is entirely self-contained).  This reduces the complexity of getting started considerably.

To use Starman, simply:

perl Makefile.PL, select the options for the standalone server.
starman tools/starman.psgi

LedgerSMB will be available at localhost:5000/login.pl and localhost:5000/setup.pl

The complete changelog is as follows:
