Major updates

Events log 

Starting from this version, VCS comes with an updated Events Log functionality and modified Configurations tab. 

1) Title could be added to the rule and put into subject of the message. It helps to organize messages in the email client.
2) "Group Limit" option allows to set after how many events under the same rule log message should be sent as a single aggregated message instead of separate e-mails per each log message. 
3) "Details Limit" option allows to set amount of characters for grouped messages.
4) New possibility to configure notification separately for Radius: Fraud Protection by tags.

5) Filters by services, tags, types and messages with POSIX regular expressions (for example, (.*)Telecom.*).

    Files from "/usr/local/vcs/var" were moved to /opt/jerasoft/vcs-data. 
    - Files from "/usr/local/vcs/tmp" was relocated to the /opt/jerasoft/vcs-data/tmp.

  2. Clients:

    - "Rates Notification" option allows to send changes made in the parent rate table.

  4. Rate Tables: 
    - increased limits up to 2 000 000 for "Min Volume", "Grace Volume", "Interval" fields;

    - rate with an asterisk ( * ) could be added as code.

  9. Routing Plans: the "Parent Routing Plan" parameter was renamed to "Additional Routing Plan". 

  10. Core:
    - added JSON-RPC errors handling mechanism, which allows to properly identify general api errors, external handler errors and validation errors.
    - new API methods are added: upload file, return file info by id, download file by id, return list of files.

  11. Dynamic Routing Manager: up to 25% increased performance in regards to memory usage.
