Release 0.6a (This is a big one!)

Let me start off by saying that this is a fairly big release for yeti, in the sense that there has been some mayor changes made. Most of these changes have been on the back of suggestions and feedback from users and for that I say "big up" and thanx a stack!

What we tried to do in this release was to make it easier to use,  and that starts right at the start when you start up yeti for the first time. All the configs are ready to go so there is no need go and look for files and directories. The only thing left is the pesky Bing Application Id or API Key, sorry I can't really do much about that.

The next big thing is the fact that all results are now stored in a database, and that you can do multiple footprints in the same database, the reason for this is so that we can start doing some interesting comparisons across footprints, but more on that a bit laterer :)

Also is that new scripting API, the JSR-223 standard got implemented, so scripting languages like Groovy, Jython, JRuby etc are now supported. I'll start adding the tutorial section on the API in due course. The main reason for this is to allow anybody to generate their own reports or even scanning/data collection engines. Also it makes it easy to do really cool things without compiling and releasing an entire new app :)

So please, take it for a spin and let us know!

Good hunting...
