Adding a socket free SlimService. Remove all hassles with port conflicts and network setup #977
Port number 1 has now a special meaning: Don’t open a socket. Instead communicate via StdIn and StdOut. Nevertheless all output from the SUT is captured, tunneled via StdErr and added to the Execution Log.
This implementation is now the default behavior (= port number 1 is the default)
The Slim protocol number has been increased to 0.5
As there is no need to open a socket it now also easier to implement a Slim Server in other programming languages.
The socket functionality is still useful for distributed testing and should be preserved also in the future. Last but not least it is required for backward compatibility.
