Alcohol calories and total calories (if set for drink types in the Settings) columns added to data export .csv file.

Version 4.9.0


New moderate drinking limits for UK, USA, Canada, Germany and WHO from updated alcohol guidelines:
- Increased USA weekly limit for both man and woman from new "Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015" by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
- Reduced UK weekly limits for man from new "UK Chief Medical Officers’ Alcohol Guidelines" effective from 1 January, 2016 (daily limits kept from previous guidelines as new guidelines does specify daily limit)
- Reduced Canada binge limits from updated "Canada's Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines" by Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse
- Reduced WHO daily/weekly limits from "Self-help strategies for cutting down or stopping substance use" by World Health Organization
- Increased Germany binge limit, reduced weekly limit from http://www.kenn-dein-limit.de by Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung

More accurate reporting for daily, weekly and monthly consumption - reaching moderate drinking limit (e.g. when consumed 2.0 units on 2 units limit) does not mean that you have stepped over moderate drinking line. This does not apply to binge limit reporting as all guidelines clearly states that reaching limit for binge/excessive drinking means you have already stepped over the line.

Feedback section moved from Settings tab to About tab. Added What's New screen with updates from @DrinkControl Twitter stream.
