Swiss Dither Removal Option Added

The Swiss team has been hard at work adding an even longer list of features to the already amazing software!  While there are a lot of notable changes in these last revisions, the one that really stands out to me is the ability to disable dithering for blending operations, which amplified a lot of noise in certain games.  This feature is available on all Swiss versions from r547 and up and Extrems posted a bit more detail in the Shmups thread.
