Release notes 

New features:
* new parser for command-line arguments. Sorting doesn't matter anymore and commands and argument follow common standards now (arguments with --arg, commands without --)
* new 'check-config' command to check manually created configs and install crontabs on headless machines
* new --debug argument. Reducing normal logging, too.
* add option to switch off stdout/err redirection in crontab
