Please add Guest Property documentation to the User Guide

Description

It would be nice if you adopted a policy of consistency across documentation and functionality, that is when you change the code, you also update the documentation at the same release. An example here is that you added guest properties in Version 2.0.0, but as at Version 2.0.4 this has still to find its way into the UG. I have done a first cut at Forums Topic  HOWTO: Use Guest Properties.

BTW, it would also be nice if you extended IConsoleCallback to incorporate a onXXXXXChange() which is fired if the guest changes a guest property to allow event notification from the guest application.

Guest property documentation will be written, we just haven't got around to it yet. Change notifications will be available in version 2.1.

Michael, why don't you or Sander get your 'hands dirty' and have a look at the above forum topic. It might give you a starting point for Documentation content.
