Marketplace Dashboard for WP8

A new update is on its way for Marketplace Dashboard to resolve the timeouts.  I've done a bunch of work to improve the asynchronous handling so it should happen faster anyway.  The problem is how many calls need to be made since there's no direct API.  I need to make two calls regardless of number of apps, and then another four calls for each app.  It adds up really quickly!  I've implemented a two-tier update process now, so it only does the full update when you ask it to.  It saves time when you don't have any new apps/versions to add and just need updated stats.  Anyway, hopefully it will be live any day now!
