Force Players to use Latest Pre-release Version

As part of the player properties, the player version can now be set to "Always latest pre-release" when the update mode is set to automatic. This will cause the player version to be updated to the latest pre-release version (or release version if there is no pre-release version available) automatically as new pre-release versions are available. For more information on the player update mode and version, see the Setting the Player Update Mode and Version.
