Conexus 0.5.0 released

This release features some changes to Conexus that include
restructuring some classes, flattening the inheritance
hierarchy in some places, and adding/extending support for
new Endpoints such as the MessageQueue endpoint which provides
support for kernel message queues.

Perhaps the single largest change is the approach taken with
the Data object, which now maintains internal storage as a
smart pointer and provides an interface for managing the
contained storage allowing for better copy semantics.

Additionally, the read/write hierarchy has been modified
to allow Endpoints to be created easier through inheritance,
and also adds threading support.

===== 0.5.0 =====

Changed Error classes to Exception classes to better reflect their role in
the library.

Added support for detecting either boost smart pointers or std::tr1 smart pointers

Added support for kernel message queues as an endpoint.

Made the Data item a proxy to an internal storage item for syntactic reasons.

Conexus::Address: Changed the sockaddr_storage member to a union of various
socket API address types for convenience.

address from a uint32_t, struct in6_addr, or a hostname string.

IPv6::TCP: Added overloaded create() methods to accept uint32_t, in6_addr or hostname string.

IPv6::TCPServer: Added overloaded create() methods to accept uint32_t, in6_addr or hostname string.
