Release highlights

Contributing guide

We now have a contributing guide which collects all important information about collaborating on the codebase in a single place.

File hooks

Now all commands in Rex::Commands::File have the ability to trigger hooks.

Testing with Travis CI

The Rex codebase is now tested on Travis CI, helping tremendously by automating not just unit testing, but also author tests. It helps making the contribution process smoother.

CMDB caching

CMDB lookups are now cached as part of the base class, so all built-in and custom CMDB modules should get the same benefits. It's important not just for performance reasons, but also helps avoiding corner cases where the CMDB contents might change while Rex is running.
