Unit conversion in 4.3


I wanted to use conversion code outside runner so now all conversion code is in a library. It also has few new categories: currency, energy, fuel efficiency, power, pressure and time.

Unit Converter Runner

Converter runner now shows all conversions that text matches.

Unit Converter Widget

I got permission from Gerhard (original author of unit converter widget) to convert widget to use same library converter runner uses. Now widget has same categories and units runner has.

Some people have complained that there is no way to know what units Unit Converter Runner supports. Hopefully these changes to runner and widget help also on that.

Hmmm, no wonder my head hurts...
