CEED snapshot8

New snapshot has been released. Archives provide testing sample data with CEGUI 0.7 and CEGUI 1.0 datafiles (CEGUI 1.0 has since been "renamed" to 0.8).

There have been 35 issues fixed from the last snapshot7. The goal of the release was to provide a more reliable and better performing application. The resources load way faster, the logging slowdown has been fixed. There have been some user experience improvements as well, including the ability to change background of embedded CEGUI to a checkerboard. This is also the first release that supports CLI options for ceed-gui.
