Version 2.1.0 released

A new version of Gesbit has been released.  It is a security update so it is highly recommended to update your Gesbit installation.

Some of the changes:

Get rid of the "/e option" and few more stuff

Finally, I have check that the changes I did to remove the /e option are running.  They needed some changes because I commit few mistakes applying the fixes.

Also, I've fixed some bugs on the gbSimple theme.  Now it renders the link to comments correctly.  It has also more style rules for more labels, as <code>, for example.

Does it mean that version 2.1.0 will be released soon?  I hope, but I can't say a date.  Also I need to revise a few more stuff.

Dealing with boolean options

Now, I'm dealing with the control panel.  You see, some option values are boolean (that is TRUE or FALSE, YES or NOT).  Currently this is managed by a text input field where your should write 1 or 0 depending you want activate or deactivate that option.  Really ugly and confusing.  What happens if you put 2, or 134?  Actually, an error message appears.

I'm replacing all that fields by selection lists with Yes or No values, which are less confusing and also avoids configuration errors.  I would use checkboxes but that would need to change current validation code.
