GMMP 1.3 Released! ReplayGain, cuesheet, bookmarking, 6 new skins, and much more.

After about a month and a half of hard work, 1.3 is finally available for download on google play and this blog.  I've gone with the pendulum screenshot for the main image for a long long time and with the new album art as a background feature I decided to pick a new song to use.
