Toastify 1.8.3 - 10/3/2016

- BUG: Toastify was no longer minimizing Spotify on startup (when the setting was set) - thanks darrenshare!
- Exception handling cleanup

# Toastify 1.8.2 - 8/3/2016
- Fixed crash when clicking on toast (that should show Spotify)

# Toastify 1.8.0 - 8/3/2016
- Toastify now loads album art again
- Toastify no longer causes Spotify to consume copious amounts of system resources (Spotify readded the current playing song to the title).
- - We lose full control of Spotify, such as thumbs up / down :(
- Added setting to allow you to keep your computer awake while Spotify is playing music
- We have started collecting anonymous usage stats - opt out in Settings.

# Toastify 1.7.8 - 26/8/2015
- Fixed toast stealing focus (thanks to everyone who reported this)
- Fixed version constantly bugging to update

# Toastify 1.7.7 - 12/8/2015
- Fixed incorrect binaries pushed in 1.7.6 which caused the toasts to disappear on some devices

# Toastify 1.7.6 - 10/8/2015
- Support for extracting Artist / Song from the latest version of Spotify (thanks arosner3 and emptythecache!)
- Fixed empty toast during launch
- Fixed fps drop (in at least one case) as per

# Toastify 1.7.5 - 23/3/2015
- Experimental hotkeys for thumbs up and thumbs down (fixes a long standing request, #11693)
- 13363 - use regular - instead of Unicode dash for "artist - title" to help with some older bits of ASCII only software

# Toastify 1.7.4 - 22/3/2015
- Added a setting to minimize Spotify on launch
- Feature Request 13516: Save current track to file (useful for scenarios such as piping the current playing track to Open Broadcaster Software etc.)
- Installer will now terminate any lingering ChromeDriver processes

# Toastify 1.7.3 - 20/3/2015
- Remove warning that hotkeys without a modifier are invalid (since they were, in fact, valid). Tracked under issue #13510
- More robust killing of Spotify (cleanly and eventually forcefully) when exiting Toastify
- Avoid potential for duplicate hotkey entries in the Settings list

# Toastify 1.7.2
- Corrected version (bug #13508)
- Added support for Win key in hotkeys (thanks bwp11!)

# Toastify 1.7.1
- Support for Spotify v1
- This support is much more invasive than previous versions due to changes made by Spotify (primarily the removal of the Artist / Track from the title bar). It has some benefits, but also comes with some down sides (we must restart Spotify when launching Toastify). There will also be bugs.
- Support for Toast positioning on high-DPI screens, you may need to re-position your Toasts
