As Ethan already noted, we'll be rolling out a new version of MTT
after the new year. For your Christmas pleasure, here's a summary of
the new features:

Sever-side / General:
---------------------

- Revamped web reporter / nightly e-mails -- huge improvements over
   the prior release, including:
     - Leaner, faster, and more intuitive web user interface
     - Clickable summary reports for drilling down
     - More flexible querying (e.g., multiple selection, regular
       expressions, sortable columns, and cherry-picked reports)
     - Query screen and reports on one screen (no frames needed)
     - Super short URLs
     - Display 100 rows at a time
- Distinguish between tests that pass, fail, timeout, and are
   intentionally skipped.
- Added support for latency and bandwidth performance testing and
   reporting. Verified with NetPIPE and IMB MPI test suites.

MTT client:
-----------

- Added support for environment modules (http://modules.sf.net/)
- Dramatically better memory utilization (especially for large
   numbers of test runs)
- Add some "progress bar"-like output to --verbose output so that
   users can see how far along the tests are
- Added "--trial" option to MTT client to allow testing of the MTT
   client/INI file setup itself without submitting potentially
erroneous/
   bad results data into the MTT results database
- Print [somewhat] better messages about errors with INI files
- MTT client now distinguishes between specifying tests to run and
   analyzing their results (e.g., correctness and performance)
