1.4 Beta 4 - Ratings + Smart Playlists

Smart playlists are finally here.  There will be one more update before it will be released on the play store and amazon.

The last update will contain:
-Some default smart playlists like last played and recently added
-A way to persist ratings / playcounts when doing a reinstall or clear the database
-Advanced customization to the metadata in now playing.  Example: %trackno%) %artist% - %trackname%  would display 1) Artist - Trackname on a single line
-Improved resampling and support for sample rates higher than 48khz
-Updated skins

Smart playlists are saved to a file located in /sdcard/gmmp/smart, so they only need to be created once and can be copied to another device
