Thanks for this! I'm a daily, heavy gitit user, and am happy to see
continued improvements to this excellent app.

> What's new in this release?
> * 'Gitit' is now something of a misnomer, as Gitit now makes use of
>   the filestore library. The upshot is that Gitit can now work in Darcs
>   repositories; if before you thought Gitit was cool but didn't like
>   git, you now have no excuse!
> * Gitit has been optimized (thanks to the efforts of Gwern Branwen):
>   - Pages are now gzipped whenever possible.
>   - Expire headers are set so that CSS, images, and javascripts
>     will be cached by the browser.
>   - Those previously mentioned elements have been optimized for space,
>     and rearranged in the generated pages for faster rendering.
> * A new configuration option allows reStructuredText to be used instead
>   of markdown (thanks to a patch from Simon Michael).
> * Gitit now sports a 'Go' box. You can now either search through
>   Search, or go to a specific page title via Go.
> * Search is smarter, and can also return page titles.
> * Revisions are better formatted: the author field now include the
>   user's email as well.
> * Diffs are of much higher quality, thanks to filestore.
> * UTF8-related fixes.
> You can check out a running example at http://gitit.johnmacfarlane.net/.
> Or try it locally:
>   cabal update
>   cabal install -fhighlighting pandoc gitit
>   gitit  # note: this will create two subdirectories in the working directory
>          # then browse to http://localhost:5001.
> The git repository for Gitit is at http://github.com/jgm/gitit/tree/master
