Chage Log
=========
(since `v0.89
<https://github.com/modilabs/pyxform/tree/39097db3da789fef9e33a6680df1e912dd29c5db>`_)

- Added support for submission_url and public_key settings.
- Added alternative syntax (\::) for grouping headers.
- Added new example/test spreadsheets: (xlsform_spec_test.xls, calculate.xls, warnings.xls)
- xls_to_dict in xls2json_backends.py now converts everything (including numbers and booleans) to trimmed unicode values.
  (This solves the issue with labels not being able to be numbers).
- Aliases added (see *_alias dictionaries in xls2json.py)
- xls2json code can collect warnings into an array and print them to a file.
- Some errors and warnings have row numbers
- Merged jbeorse's base.xls with modilabs's base.xls into all.xls
- Fixed translations for media and hints
- Added media back in
- Added table-lists
- Automatic none option for select all that apply is off by default.
- Adding json_form_schema.json to document the json format.
  (Perhaps it could be used for validation or form generation at some point).
