JWebThumb 0.3 released

JWebThumb 0.3 was just released.

The most important change is the migration form XStream to XML Simple which allows JWebThumb to run in Google App Engine. Also support for 'status' request was added and 'fetch' method can now send thumbnails directly to output stream as an alternative to storing the bytes in memory.
