Release notes 

I'm happy to announce the release of Back In Time 1.1.0 today.

This release is a complete overhaul of Back In Time. It now comes with only
one GUI written in Qt4 to make future development easier as we don't need
to track changes in both Gnome and KDE GUI any more. The Qt4 GUI runs on
Gnome and KDE based Desktops. I also ported Back In Time to Python3.

Some other hot new features:
* add progress bar
* enabled multi selection in all lists to delete/restore/... multiple items at once
* inhibit Suspend or Hibernate during a snapshot is running
* add restore dialog for config file
* built-in anacron-like schedule
* more user-callback events
Please take a look at CHANGES for full changelog

I hope you enjoy the new release as much as I do.
