github has won the internet and I'm a joiner

I've got a whole bunch of stuff coming up and rather than announce it all at once, I'll dribble it out bit by bit.  Let's start with github.

Don't Make This Harder Than it Has to Be

Hey, google code.  It's not you, it's me.  Honestly, I just think github will make me more popular.  There. I said it.

Yes, yes.  I know you do git now and I appreciate that.  Really, I do.  But let's face it, we both know you don't really want to.  And you've really let your social features go.  I mean, that's just sad.

So I'm going to leave my old repository there for a while if you don't mind?  Yeah, I know that's a bit rude... but it's more convenient for me.

WhirlyGlobe 2.0

The next major version will go up on github.  In fact, it is already.  You just can't see it.  Trust me, you don't want it yet.  I'm messing with the namespaces and generally causing havoc.  Why put up with that until you have to?

I'm also contemplating a smaller 1.3 release to round out the Mapbox Tiles functionality.  That'll stay on google code.
