New Feature: Rendering README files when browsing repostiory

We have just released a new feature that allows 'README(*)' files to be rendered when browsing the source through the web interface ('Browse Source' menu item). This is a great feature for connecting the source with getting started and further information, licensing issues and similar.

The feature is documented in the 'Help' section as HelpUser/RepositoryReadMeFile, and it should provide the information you need to get started providing your users with better and more immediate information about your source code.

A simple example can be seen in the reiseregningen project.

As usual, we have made this feature available as Open Source - see ReposReadMePlugin by osimons.

Hope you like it!
