The main goal of this release was to move more common code to the
Black Diamonds project. However, since this took a long time, many other
changes and improvements accumulated.

One of the most important changes for users is support for Java 9 and 10, which
simplifies using SOMns, because users do not need a custom Java 8 VM
any longer.

Another important user-facing change is the inclusion of our documentation into
the repository and its deployment to somns.readthedocs.io.
