Hi TaskJuggler Users!

I'm happy to announce the release of TaskJuggler III 0.0.11. This may
be the last release of the TJ3 initial alpha series. I think it is
time now to expose TJ3 to a wider audience. If all goes well, we'll
start a series of beta releases to polish the TJ3 syntax. Hopefully,
the boarder user base will then help us to remove the last issues with
the TJ3 syntax. I'd like to release the first stable TJ3 release some
time later this year.

TaskJuggler 0.0.11 comes with a bunch of new features but probably
even more bug fixes. Thanks to everyone who reported issues!

If you missed it, TaskJuggler is now using GitHub:
https://github.com/taskjuggler/TaskJuggler. Feel free to check it out,
watch it or even fork it.
