* Enhanced text output of `info` command to include timestamps, sizes, and the reference list for all backups. Contributed by Cynthia Shang.  
  
* Allow selective restore of databases from a cluster backup. This feature can result in major space and time savings when only specific databases are restored. Unrestored databases will not be accessible but must be manually dropped before they will be removed from the shared catalogue.  
  
* Experimental support for non-exclusive backups in PostgreSQL 9.6 beta1. Changes to the control/catalog/WAL versions in subsequent betas may break compatibility but pgBackRest will be updated with each release to keep pace.  
  

Support for non-exclusive backups in PostgreSQL 9.6.

Some files need to be added to the manifest after the initial build.  This is currently done in only one place but usage will expand in the future so the functionality has been encapsulated in addFile().  
  

Make the initial capital for hints consistent.

Some hints started with a capital letter and others did not. Make them all lower case for consistency.

Added database version constants and changed version identification code to use hash tables instead of if-else.  Propagated the db version constants to the rest of the code and in passing fixed some path/filename constants.  
  
Added new regression tests to check that specific files are never copied.  
  

Fix null and linefeed handling in Db->executeSql().

The join() used was not able to handle nulls and was replaced by a loop.  An injudicious trim was removed when the source of extra linefeeds was determined to be an additional loop execution that was not handled correctly.  
  

Allow selective restore of databases from a cluster backup.

This feature can result in major space and time savings when only specific databases are restored. Unrestored databases will not be accessible but must be manually dropped before they will be removed from the shared catalogue.  
  

Added --db-version=minimal option as default.

This change assigns each version of PostgreSQL to a specific OS version for testing to minimize the number of tests being run.  In general, older versions of PostgreSQL are assigned to older OS versions.  
  
The old behavior can be enabled with `--db-version=all`.  
  

Test directories are now located on the host VM rather than in the Docker container.

This change allows for easier testing since all files are local on the host VM and can be easily accessed without using `docker exec`.  In addition, this change is required to allow multiple Docker containers per test case which is coming soon.  
  

Enhanced text output of info command to include timestamps, sizes, and the reference list for all backups.

The prior way worked fine but added extraneous linefeeds to the log output.

Minor wording change: problems => challenges.

Added a note to documentation that only 64-bit distributions are supported.  It seems unlikely that anybody would be running a production server on anything else these days so we'll wait for a field report before taking further action.  
  

README.md is now rendered by new Markdown code.
