GMMP 2.1 Beta 5

GMMP 2.1 is mostly done besides remaining bug fixes and maybe one additional capability, so I anticipate Beta 6 to be mostly a fix update with a full release shortly after.  On another note I've already started prototyping some things for 3.0.  I am working on a new theme engine that should allow theme transitions without having to restart the UI and support any arbitrary color combination for material themes.  My hope this should play nicely with a cool feature google added in 5.0 to extract colors from images (album art) to use for themes.  https://www.bignerdranch.com/blog/extracting-colors-to-a-palette-with-android-lollipop/
