camUpdate-v0.3.2 Beta

Notable Changes:
- Automatic ADC calibration during black calibration, which should reduce column banding across a wider temperature range.
- Add a storage tab to the util menu to view, eject and format the attached storage devices.                                                                          - Speed boost at most resolutions, with a top speed of 1069fps at 1280x1024, and 40420fps at 320x96.                                                        - Configurable automated power-on and off depending on the AC adaptor status.

Minutiae:
- Factory black calibration is now user accessible from the Factory tab of the util window.                                                                                    - The software update button has been moved to the storage tab of the util window.                                                                                        - Shipping mode to disable power-on by battery until an AC adaptor is attached.                                                                                                   - Add a watchdog to reboot the camera in case of power-on boot failure.

Fixed Bugs:
- Memory leak in the M3 video coprocessor which could lead to a crash after lots of H.264 encoding.                                                            - Ignore video which was recorded during black calibration.                    - Changes to exposure may be overwritten during black calibration.

Known Issues:
- After applying this update, software versions v0.3.1 and earlier may no longer be able to receive battery data or utilize the power button.
