Updates to SAMSON and SAMSON Connect

Participants : Jocelyn Gate, Stephane Redon.

To be able to know if SAMSON works well on users computers, we added some logging features inside SAMSON, SAMSON installers and SAMSON Helpers. Thanks to this functionality, users may accept to send logs when bugs are found. For example, if SAMSON crashes on a user computer, a log is generated, anonymized, and automatically sent to the SAMSON Connect web service. If SAMSON crashes because of a SAMSON Element, an email is sent to the author of the SAMSON Element. If a new user tries to install SAMSON or the SAMSON SDK, a log is sent to the SAMSON Connect web service.

We also added the possibility for users to configure proxy access to SAMSON Connect.

These functionalities will be part of the upcoming 0.6.0 release of SAMSON.
