Collaborative text editing: 0.2 beta release and end of GSoC

After three months and 430 commits introducing 23165 changes (line insertions/removals; in the kte-collaborative repository, plus about 50 more commits in kde-telepathy and libqinfinity), the beta release I hereby announce marks the end of my Google Summer of Code project, which consisted of implementing collaborative text editing in KTextEditor (see previous).

For more general information about the project, make sure to also have a look at the user manual, which has some in-depth explanations on how things work.

First, the technical stuff:
libqinfinity version 0.5.1:
SHA256: bcfeb899921057cf4e7f393c48ca6b4f7e3ee21c64c783f692a5af48118755ad

kte-collaborative version 0.1.80 (aka 0.2 beta 1):
SHA256: 2679611900796be86af8fc84a5f90bb76fedff715f29d4530ed5ccf982c3fe03

kte-collaborative depends on kde-telepathy 0.7 beta or later.
