In v0.13 the code was very heavily refactored for increased uniformity since
most of the Synnefo components have been merged into a single repository. Thus,
**just for this version** we will not document a complete Changelog (features,
fixes, improvements, issues, setting changes), but rather just copy from the
`NEWS` file with minor additions wherever needed.
