Long live the applet

ZPE will remove the applet from version 1.6.0.

Java Applets were once cool and they still kind of are, but they're just no longer relevant in today's world of fantastic web applications.

JavaScript has much replaced these old NPAPI based plugins and it's time that ZPE did the same.

So, as of version 1.6.0, the Java applet will no longer be included at all. This reduces the file size a tiny bit and it's not about that. It's about making the ZPE package much more modern.
