Hey everyone,

We've just released a new Dancer2 version, approximately two weeks after
the previous one.

This version contains quite a few changes. In statistics:
* Github issues resolved: 21
* Bugs resolved: 7
* Enhancements introduced: 12
* Documentation changes: 6
* Total changes introduced: 25

Big ones:
* Serializers always serialize, no matter what. This is important!
* Static files are finally served before routes and don't create a new
route. This is huge!
* Catching template rendering errors. Very crucial!
* Should fix Windows testing errors. Sorry about that!
* Named params can be freely mixed with splat and megasplat. Woohoo!
* New testing manual! See: Dancer2::Manual::Testing.
* You can disable "Server" tokens header. Finally!

Thank you to everyone who worked on this release (in order of appearance):
Sawyer X, Russell Jenkins, Steven Humphrey, Theo Van Hoesel, Mickey
Nasriachi, Omar M. Othman, Dávid Kovács (DavsX), and Johan Spade.

The entire changelog is available below:
