VQWiki 2.8 RC1 released

Hi, I'm Marcello Teodori, new project lead for VQWiki, and I'm happy to announce we're finally making available VQWiki 2.8 RC1. This release is mostly a bugfix release which tries to cover all the issues from JIRA on the 2.8 beta, before letting the project move forward to the 3.0 branch.

This release is a RC1 because it is meant to collect all the feedback from the current VQWiki users, so everyone's invited to upgrade and verify everything is ok before freezing a proper 2.8 final in the next few weeks. Thanks for all the support.

Another couple of info:
1) JIRA has moved to http://issues.vqwiki.org
2) there is also a new self-executable JAR distribution that embeds the winstone servlet container

I would also like to thank the volunteers who have helped with this release, Filippo Diotalevi, Gian Carlo Pace, Andreas Studer and Bruno Bossola and obviously Martijn for all his work on the project.

--Marcello
