Following the refactor of the People directory in the last release, this release contains an overhaul of the Course Catalog using the super-fast and powerful ElasticSearch framework.

0.2.08 also contains the first release of FAQ and Tutorial content templates for Shops which we'll be able to use for other content in the Portal and the final release of the CCA email footer generator.

If you've already tried out the email footer generator in the Portal, you will want to build a new footer using the final footer design.
