v0.1.4

Changes:

Added: Import Outpost IP Blocklist
Added: Full rDNS (including PTR)
Added: New validation mode (IP resolution only)

Modified: Updated help file

Notes:

Special thanks to Donna and Hardhead at Calendar of Updates (CoU) for both suggesting and testing the new features.

I completely forgot about the individual validation method and such that were mentioned in the review by ghacks.net (http://forum.hosts-file.net/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=463), so will work on those for 0.1.5 (and I'll write 'em down this time so I don't forget again, lol).
