Foxmarks 0.61

Today we released Foxmarks 0.61, which contains a number of improvements. Most important for our users, we finally bit the bullet and implemented an improvement to the routine that handles "dangling references" -- you've been bittten by the deficiencies in the previous version of this routine if you've ever seen some of your bookmarks turn mysteriously into separators. We have given up on trying to handle specifically all the different ways that people can get bookmarks onto their system; this new algorithm casts a very wide net in detecting and repairing problems that might have eluded the previous algorithm, without trying to understand specifically how those problems occurred. As always, we love to hear feedback, so please let us know how it works for you.
