Hi All,

I'm happy to announce a new release major release of TestFixtures.
This release is 99% backwards compatible, but a lot has changed under 
the hood and there's some major new functionality, so thought it was 
time for a bump.

The big changes are:

- compare now uses a registry of comparers in the same way that
   unitest2's assertEquals does. You can register your own globally,
   register the default comparers for your own types and use a specific
   registry for a specific call to compare.

- The handling of timezones has been reworked in `test_datetime` again.
   (did anyone ever mention that timezones are hard ;-) )
   It feels more intuitive now, but it is backwards incompatible in
   the case where the `tzinfo` parameter to the `test_datetime`
   constructor was used.
