5.14.1. Master Features

Among others, it permits to use a buildbot virtualenv instead of installing buildbot in all the system. Added documentation inside the hook. Misc. clean-up and reorganization in order to make the code a bit more readable.
  • UI templates can now be customizable. You can provide html or jade overrides to the www plugins, to customize the UI
  • UI side bar is now fixed by default for large screens. Fixes
