[Snowy] ANNOUNCE: Snowy 0.1 "Chihuahua" Released

Hey there Snowy fans,

I'm very happy to announce the first ever Snowy release: Snowy 0.1,
the "Chihuahua" release!  This should be considered a very early
preview release, and is not yet recommend for public servers or
important data.  Do not forget that the diminutive Chihuahua in your
local celebrity's purse has a nasty bite!

For the uninitiated, Snowy is a web-based viewer for your Tomboy
notes.  It's written in Python using the Django web framework, and is
licensed under the AGPL.

This release represents over a year of sporadic work.  We intend to
follow the GNOME release schedule from here on out, and aim to have a
hosted beta of Tomboy Online running Snowy 1.0 in time for GNOME 3.0
(plans subject to change).

Snowy 0.1, "Chihuahua" features:
* An implementation of the Tomboy web sync REST API (the same API that
Ubuntu One implements for note sync):
* OpenID support, so you can log in with your Google/Launchpad/whatever account
* Read-only online note access (notes can be made publicly readable in
the admin UI for now)
* A friendly Tomboy-like web UI for accessing your notes, supporting
rich text, note links, note pinning, full-text search, etc
* An initial unit test suite

Contributors to this release include:

Brad Taylor, Sandy Armstrong, Leon Handreke, Sander Dijkhuis, Benoit
Garret, Olivier Le Thanh Duong, Stuart Langridge, Adam Ziolkowski,
Andy Duplain, Jordan Keyes, Mike Gorse, Ray Wang, Shayne Macaulay
