11/8/2014 Build 5425
1. Added the ability to load and display image layers.
1. Changed the call key 7 and up routine to check for no selected sirens or groups and the call key has special control.  In this case, it will process the wild card
mask in the special control and add the appropriate commands.  
2. Changed the call key 7 and up routine to check for “Activate Independent” option on the all group.  When this is found, the software will select all sirens and then place them in groups if groups have been assigned.  This is similar to what happens in the call key 1 to 6 routine.

1. WxFailSafe - Corrected an exception that occurred when sending files with the
Mode set to Single.
 1. The alert classes are no longer populated on a new install.  
2. The sound card level now defaults to 100 on a new install.

6. The volume control setting on each interface should be a value from 1 to 100. This number represents a percentage, where 100 is 100 percent.
1. The Call Key setup window now has a new tab for notification.  The Send Email option was moved from the Call Key tab to the Notification tab.  It was renamed to Send Post Notification Email.  Added Send Pre-Activation Email and Pre-Activation Message fields.  The Send Pre-Activation Email drop down box allows the user to select a blank entry for no email or 26 different group identifiers (SJA through SJZ).  When one of the group identifiers is selected, the Pre-Activation Message field should be populated with a user message.  The software will generate a product for processing by Weather Message before the sirens are activated.  An alarm must be setup in Weather Message that corresponds to the group identifier with the appropriate email settings.  For example, selecting SJA in the Send Pre-Activation Email field will require the alarm SJAWXM in Weather
