Summary: webgen 0.5.8 released
Project: webgen

This release brings some very useful new features and paves the way for more new features in the
next versions!

The most notable change is that there is no distinction between website styles and templates anymore
- both are called bundles now or more specifically, for example, style bundles. Since both were
basically the same but provided different kinds of content I thought that it would be useful to drop
the distinction.

This also lead to changes in the CLI command `create` which can now take any number of website
bundles from which the new website will be created. Also, the `create` command got a new companion,
the `apply` command which can be used to apply website bundles to an already existing website.

But that's not all regarding website bundles: after the addition of a new source class for handling
local or remote, possibily gzipped, tar archives, it is now very easy to provide style bundles or
even complete websites on websites. For example, if a user develops a new website style bundle and
puts it on his website, anyone can use it by just using

webgen create -b default -b http://www.example.com/webgen/ubercool-style.tar.gz new_site

As usual, some minor enhancements, many bug fixes and many documentation updates made it into this
release! See the changes section for a complete list of changes and also note that some parts of the
API got deprecated!
