As discussed in anathema/, this serves to simplify our distribution process.
Instead of reading the latest version from a file we manually update, comparing the build dates, Anathema now parses the tags in the github repository and determines the highest version number.

Im ambivalent about this change, because on the one hand, it makes releases way easier without complicating our process or polluting our repository, but on the other hand, it adds a new dependency, the github API.

I'll leave this open for a day or two and wait for comments.
