v2.0

This release is a complete rework of the original Beacon application and aims to fix the shortcomings of v1.x.

+ Rewrote the application in Kotlin
+ Added support for service repositories
+ Improved UPnP detection and error handling
+ Added lease durations to prevent accidental creation of indefinite port mappings
+ Added a field which displays the external host address
+ Reworked the entire branding
- Removed support for custom services

Please note that users only require a copy of either Beacon.exe or Beacon.jar. All *.dat files will be retrieved automatically by the application upon startup.

v1.1.0

+ New service templates (including Rust, Killing Floor 2 and Starbound)
* Some code cleanup

v1.0.2
