What's New:
* Fixed invalid message extraction methods causing an
* Extraction method specification can now use a dot instead of the
colon to separate module and function name (ticket #105).
* Fixed message catalog compilation for locales with more than two
plural forms (ticket #95).
* Fixed compilation of message catalogs for locales with more than
two plural forms where the translations were empty (ticket #97).
* The stripping of the comment tags in comments is optional now and
is done for each line in a comment.
* Added a JavaScript message extractor.
* Updated to CLDR 1.6.
* Fixed timezone calculations when formatting datetime and time
* Added a `get_plural` function into the plurals module that returns
the correct plural forms for a locale as tuple.
* Added support for alias definitions in the CLDR data files, meaning
that the chance for items missing in certain locales should be greatly
reduced (ticket #68).

A big thank you to everyone who tried Babel and provided feedback,
