Technical release notes about Mura CMS 6

Mura CMS 6 represents one of the biggest releases of Mura CMS ever. As always, we strive for as much backwards compatibilty as possible. Most upgrades from previous versions will be problem-free. However, there are a few minor issues that may arise when upgrading to Mura CMS 6, especially if you're using Microsoft IIS 6.
