What's New:
Compiled as a Universal Binary.
Added an option to hide the Desktop. When hidden, the files are still available in the Desktop folder accessible from the Finder or the "Open Desktop Folder" option from the Docktop contextual menu.
Integrated the "Multiply Docktop" functionality directly into the Docktop preferences. Click the "Clone Docktop" feature to create a new instance of Docktop that allows its own preferences, items, position, etc.
Fixed an error that occurred on some systems when re-launching Docktop after changing the background image style.
