It's here at last!  Tinderbox 3.4 has been released.  This release
includes the following changes.

* Add support for build groups to allow for adding ports to multiple
Builds at the same time.

* New documentation build from DocBook so that the text README and
website README are in sync.

* Support for FreeBSD 10.X.

* Add the ability to compress log files with bzip2.  This is an optional
feature (default is off) which can be enabled by setting the
LOG_COMPRESSLOGS configuration option.

* Add the possibility to delete existing WRKDIR tarball when the build
is successful.

* Modify the WebUI code to show, for each failed port, a link to this
tarball, if the tarball exists.

* Add a new contributed postPortBuild Hook to help optimize mass builds.

* Stderr is piped to /dev/null if debugging is not enabled.

* Add support for MySQL 5.4 and 5.5

* Add support for TEST_DEPENDS.

* Add new Hooks for pre and post checksum validation.

* Allow all ports for a given Build to be added to the BuildPortsQueue
if the -d argument is omitted when calling addBuildPortsQueueEntry.

* Add support for perl5.10.

* Add UNIX domain socket support for connecting to the database.

* Bump the ports_tree_name field to 255 characters.

* Add links to requeue a port to the tinderd queue.

* Add hooks to the configuration page. The patch lists all of the hooks
and leaves the unused ones with an empty command.

* Sort builds in drop down menu alphabetically.

* Add the number of duds to the webui frontends.

* Only show builds in the drop down menu for which the user has
permissions to add new queue entries.

* Add functionality to add more than one port at a time via the tinderd
queue view.

* A number of other fixes and cleanups.

* Fix some variable initialization issues in the webui

* Allow Jails and Builds to be removed when BuildPortsQueue entries exist
