Release notes

Mostly a bug fix release - here we're clearing out a number of errors that crept in from 6.x-2.8, as well as handling a few new unicode characters for urls, as well as a change which should allow the unicode character code to work in PHP 4.

On the new functionality side, we've got some tweaks to the views support, including formatting the plain title of the link and support for Views 3. It's also now possible to turn off link validation for a field, in case you need to include some seriously non-standard urls.
