Hi !

I'm pleased to announce the 0.13 new release of the logilab-common package.
This release provides some bug fixes and minor enhancements and api changes
which shouldn't break backward compatibility, so users are strongly
encouraged to update.

What's new ?
    * testlib: ability to skip a test
    * configuration:
      - cleaner configuration file generation
      - refactoring so that we can have more control on file
        configuration loading using read_config_file and load_config_file
        instead of load_file_configuration
    * modutils: fix is_relative to return False when from_file is a file
      located somewhere in sys.path
    * compat: make set iterable and support more other set operations...
    * removed the astng sub-package, since it's now self-distributed as
