Change to an open source installer

Description

Start using an open source, multi-platform installer instead of our current installer, InstallShield?.

This involves creating an installer project for the new installer software with the same install logic, components, jvm bundling, third party software bundling and one-click invocation as we get with InstallShield?, plus hopefully some more features like the ability to style the text in the GUI, 'features' screens during install and the ability to put links to webpages in the GUI.

Any advice regarding which open source installer software to use is welcomed.
