Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.5; You can get a tarball here [0].

This release contains only minor usability improvements but lots of internal
cleanups. We are making good progress on porting alot to python 3, finally
introduced a testing suite and now make use of build-testing on travis.ci and
(partly automated) code reviews for pull requests on github.

A big thanks goes to Lucas Hoffmann (lucc) and Dylan Baker (dcbaker),
who contributed most of this work.

Usage updates since v0.4:
* save command prompt, recipient and sender history across program restarts
* new config option: "handle_mouse" to enable interpretation of mouse events
* prompt for unsent messages before closing
* enable variable interpolation in config file
* Add encryption to CC addresses
* Add bufferlist, tablist and pyshell subcommands to the command line interface
* new hook: "loop_hook", that runs periodically
* new config option: "periodic_hook_frequency" to adjust how often to fire "loop_hook"

As usual, a quick hall of fame of recent contributors:
