Dmedia 0.5 "so shiny"

This release is going to focus on making it super easy to build fantastic user experiences on top of dmedia and desktopcouch. This means building a good JavaScript foundation, providing clean examples, and writing some great documentation.

On the backend, we still need to actually dispatch individual download jobs, so we'll add a download manager to do just that. And we'll add the high-level D-Bus API that applications like Novacut and PiTiVi will need to integrate with dmedia.

Release notes 

I'm happy to announce the 5th release of the Distributed Media Library (aka "dmedia"). At this point dmedia is really just for developers and highly adventurous end-users, but the design and implementation are both progressing quickly.
