LightBurn 1.0.03 released - minor update with a few changes and fixes

This release is primarily to update the search function for the LightBurn Bridge device, address a few small issues, and adds a couple small features.

LightBurn Bridge: You can now manually edit the IP address of a laser in Edit > Device Settings, and there is a 'Scan' button there to redo the search for LightBurn Bridge devices.

Snap improvement: Holding the Alt key now increases the snapping distance by 3 times.  If you are trying to drag-snap one shape to another, holding Alt makes this much simpler.  Holding Alt before you click-select a shape also makes snapping much easier.

Shortcut keys have been added to the tool-tips for most functions on the left toolbar.  For example, if you hover over the 'Edit Nodes' button, you'll see this:

The Grid Array tool now has a Shift by Half button, making it much easier to create staggered grid layouts:
