New Features

Per Karen's excellent suggestion, you no longer have to be a registered user to explore the features of PenWag. There's now a visitor's mode that lets visitors read stories and generally explore the site before they commit to registering.

Other recent features:
- Switch from recover password to reset password for enhanced security.
- Passwords on now hashed and not stored in the clear (!), again, for enhanced security.
- Upgraded to GWT 1.7, which allowed me to get the story list grid styled correctly.
- The Teasers are now cached using ehCache, which improves performance across-the-board.
