Fixed a minor problem with the French localization. Went to major version 2 to fix a silly versioning problem.

1.51:
Augmented the Nikon maker note information, as per a user request. Reorganized the code’s global variables and functions so as to minimize the possibility of namespace conflicts, as per an AMO reviewer request.

Version 1.40 118.8 kB Works with Firefox 1.5 - 3.0b4, Thunderbird 1.5 - 2.0.0.*

Added the ability to launch Google™ Earth if GPS information is included in the EXIF data, with the option of saving the information to a KML file.

Modified the Viewer to handle the change in behaviour in the beta versions of FF 3.0 in which long strings without breaking spaces were causing the width of the output area to increase indefinitely, rather than leaving the width as is and displaying a scroll bar; also fixed a problem with expanding and collapsing the IPTC Core lists caused by a change in the tagnames for HTML elements. Verified that everything still works in beta 4.
