This version is not just an update but also an upgrade. New functions are implemented in the software whenever I'm in a need of these functionalities myself, or when people ask for them. Version 1.2 has a number of new practical functionalities implemented. 

New functionalities:

 - Import data directly from Origin project (OriginLab Corp.). This function exploits my first contribution to the MATLAB File Exchange: importOrigin
 - Support for IR spectraTransmittance <-> AbsorbanceLabel peaks. Thanks to Amin from Sharif University, Iran, for inducing the idea.
 - Merge sessions.
 - Subtract minimum value from spectrum.
 - Plot the original spectrum when a fitted spectrum is selected.
 - The program now checks for new updates when loading the GUI.

Improvements to existing functionalities:

 Straight-line fit is more robust.
 - Improved algorithm for decomposing spectra.
 - Loading/saving tools remembers last saved/opened file.
 - Added an integration menu tool for specifying all spectra and wavelengths.
 - Added a normalization menu defining a range of spectra to normalize and their normalization wavelength.
 - Trimmed the toolbar.

Bug fixes: 

 - Fixed bug when calculating spectral overlap integrals using spectra with <0.5 nm grid spacing. Thanks to Thangaraju from Paris, France, for reporting the bug.
