2.0.6 * Hotfix to enforce the Content-Length header during tunneling

* Hotfix for Cupertino HLS Tunneling
It was reported that randomly HLS clips could not be played.  The problem could be verified when a certain PublishingPoint was configured to tunnel Cupertino HLS sessions. This behaviour was caused by a fault in the URL encryption.
CHandlerCupertino.CCupertinoTSChunk - url property
 
2.0.5 * Avoid multiple iOS cupertino connections
This feature is used to avoid multiple playlist connections on WOWZA streaming server established by iOS devices.
CHandlerCupertino.CreateContentOutput modified to handle 2 Byte Range Requests for Playlists
In that case the LoadBalancer does not open a connection to the streaming server.

* cupertino tunnel
Some iOS Apps perform a client side playlist transformation and therefore cause server session timeout issues.
To avoid this problem a special session handler was needed to handle long term requests,
Attribute to enable/disable the tunnel for a publishingpoint*.xml is use_tunnel="true".
New objects to handle tunnel requests
CWowzaSessionID, CCupertinoTSChunk, CCupertinoPlaylist_wowza, CCupertinoPlaylist_loadbalancer, CCupertinoPlaylist_tunnel_chunks
