Release Notes:

Version: 2.8.20
Release Date: 3/17/09

Summary: Adds new night mode events, adds new pluggable alarm screen actions, fixes shuffle button in My Music Files


* retains "shuffle" setting in My Music Files across restarts

Night Mode:

* should properly handle dark->dim transitions for 3.7 hardware for units at the extremes.

Easter Eggs:

* adds a "dark" and "dim" events to NightMode - simulates the behavior of the "DARK" button:

<event type="NightMode" value="dark" comment=""/> // turn off the display
<event type="NightMode" value="dim" comment=""/> // turn the display to dim

NightMode must be active for these events to work.

* adds two new actions for the pluggable alarm ring screen:
   - stopAlarmWithMusic()  - stops the alarm, but continues to play the audio (use Music screen to shut off)
   - resetBackupAlarm() - reschedules the backup alarm, but does not dismiss the current alarm.
