Upgrading from version 1.0.1

To upgrade from version 1.0.1, you'll need to replace your existing .js files with the new ones. For your menu structure, the key function "menuObj = new jsDOMenuBar()" has changed in terms of accepted parameters, so you'll need to modify this function per the included instruction.
