Sala 1.3 has been released.

New features:

* Support for hooks, with a post-set hook initially supported. Patch
  by Jyrki Pulliainen.

* Bash completion script for tab-completion in $SALADIR.

Other changes:

* Move the repository state to the .sala subdirectory. .salakey
  becomes .sala/key and sala.conf becomes .sala/config. These files
  are moved when sala 1.3 is run the first time on an old repository.
  Initial patch by Jyrki Pulliainen.

* Respect SALADIR when creating subdirectories with set.

The new version is available on PyPI and via pip and easy_install:

  $ pip install -U sala
