[ANN] rutema 0.5.0 Released

rutema version 0.5.0 has been released!

## DESCRIPTION:

Rutema provides the basis for building tools that can manage the execution of tests as well as an example implementation as proof-of-concept for the ideas behind it.

It's purpose is to provide a set of classes and a framework that will allow testers to specify and execute tests in heterogeneous testing environments.

Rutema allows you to combine tools while it takes care of logging, reporting, archiving of results and formalizes execution of automated and manual tests.
