NEW Standard projects: Set automatic job-dependencies upon order creation

Set automatic job-dependencies upon order creation. When configuring an order option in the new order form with a Standard Project Template attached to it, all jobs can be triggered with status "Proposal" if the next two conditions are met:
- The project default status should be "In progress";
- The task assignment should be defined as "group proposal" (or crowdsourced) in order to find somebody that qualifies for the job;
If one of the conditions is not met, the job status for the task will be "DRAFT".

This is valid for each task in the workflow.

NEW File filter "Test configuration" tool: Now better identifies problems specific to XML and JSON filters

Editing XML and JSON filters involves the definition of so-called "XPath" expressions. When employing multiple XPath expressions one must make sure that there are no conflicts among each other. The "Test configuration" tool now runs additional tests to ensure that no problems appear during both marking online and building the translated file. It is strongly recommended to always test a configuration prior to use in production.

NEW Order form configuration: Master memory for consolidation automatically set

If you have configured your order form accordingly, when a client submits an order, the system creates a project and attaches to it a list of resources. It is now possible to include in that collection of resources the default Master memory for the client and activate it for automatic consolidation. With this change, the system does two things: First, it automatically includes the default Master TM for the client in each of their projects created via the order form (if the resource is not already part of the resource group, it is added on top of the list). Second, it sets this TM as a consolidation memory of the newly created project.
