GlueKit updated for Xojo 2015 r2.1

GlueKit (originally announced here: has been updated for Xojo 2015 r2.1. Xojo has done a great job migrating new framework classes to Desktop so GlueKit is smaller than ever. As promised we followed the exact API so doing a simple find/replace upgraded our projects from GlueKit to Xojo in a snap.

Once Xojo.Net.TCPSocket is available on Desktop then GlueKit will no longer be needed. Until then you can rely on it to share business logic between Desktop & iOS apps.

Removed GlueKit_Extensions_Mobile as it does not fit the spirit of GlueKit by adding features.

Removed ToText() and ToDouble() Auto extensions. No longer needed because Xojo Auto handling is better on Desktop.
