Improved news system
As you might have noticed, we today changed the way news are managed and presented. These changes make it easier for users to stay up-to-date and easier for the project members to add new and maintain old news items.
The new system is based on pacopablo's TracBlogPlugin. Each news item is now a "blog page", allowing us to be more verbose in the news. Long posts automatically get truncated appropriately in the "Latest news" box on the front-page.
All news items are marked with the tag news. Hence the news archive just gathers all pages with such a tag - no need to manually add old news there or things like that. Tagging is implemented using the TagsPlugin.
Now that we have almost all ingredients in place, the next thing to look at is the implementation of the idea described in #619. Stay tuned!
