LedgerSMB 1.5.0 released

The LedgerSMB project is proud to announce the release of 1.5.0,
the start of a new line of maintenance releases.

This release can be summarized as a major user experience boost
through improvements in performace, look and stability. Performance
improvements are being achieved by moving from per-request-invoked
CGI-scripts to a preloaded-PSGI application as well as moving to a
single-page web application using the Dojo toolkit.
