I would like to express many thanks and kudos to everyone who contributed to this release.
Special thanks to @blr21560 for the help with LESS conversion and localization, to @easylogic, @kktos, @drewda, @fungms for various improvements and bug fixes. And to everyone else who contributed by testing, submitting bugs working on tutorials and documentation.
