setup 2.891release candidate - please test

A new setup release candidate is available at: (64 bit version)    (32 bit version)

Please test and report any problems here.

This is not the place for setup feature requests.

Changes compared to 2.889:

- 'Use HTTP/FTP Proxy' connection type now uses the WinINet API

As a consequence, the '--user-agent' option now affects this connection type as well

- Remove the 'Direct(legacy)' connection type and associated cruft

There have been no reported problems with it's replacement, the 'Direct' connection type, since it's introduction in 2.878

If this is the currently configured connection type, it will be silently migrated to 'Direct'

- Improve file:// URL handling

All well-formed file URLs should now work. Malformed file URLs we previously accepted should also still work.

Thanks to SZAVAI Gyula for these changes.

- Various fixes for regressions in 'Install from Local Directory' mode

Thanks to Ken Brown for these changes.

- Add support for setup-minimum-version: in setup.ini

- Preliminary support for 'provides:' and 'conflicts': in setup.ini
