This is the first release of Toree since it joined Apache as an incubator project on December 2nd, 2015.
As part of moving to Apache, the original codebase from SparkKernel has been renamed, repackaged and improved in a variety of areas. It is also important to note that the version has been reset back to
0.1.0 in favor or the version scheme used in the old project.

- New plugin framework for extending Toree. Currently only used for Magics.
- Support for sharing Spark context across different language interpreters.
- Improved AddDeps magic by using Coursier
- Binder support for easy trial on Jupyter Notebook
