Bringing Quality of Zabbix to a New Level

Great news for everyone. Recently we have moved to a new release procedure that would allow us to improve quality of Zabbix and make planning of future major releases much easier.

Now all improvements are implemented separately and go through a proper independent testing, and only then are merged to a branch - that is, applied to the development versions.

Following this procedure has made the trunk (development version that will become next stable version after 1.8) and the 1.8 development branch much more stable and less likely to contain software issues.

Additionally, all the changes are documented before committing them to a branch.
