Prerequisites Checker Gramplet undocked from the Dashboard

The Prerequisites Checker Gramplet is a diagnostic tool to help work out if instances of Gramps have the required prerequisites installed as well as the latest version of core software.

Also helps in OS's like Windows (Microsoft) and macOS (Apple) where it is less common for users to start programs via the command line interface. The gramplet is a GUI alternative to getting information on Gramps via ( gramps -v )!
