Version 1.0.92, (Git)

* New commands:

 lsaattr   describe-image-attribute
 setaattr  modify-image-attribute

* Implement signature version 4 signing

The signature version 4 signing process is enabled by adding the
following statement in the eclat configuration file:

  signature-version 4;

* POST support

POST HTTP method is supported.  It is enabled by the following
configuration statement:

  http-method post;
  
* If availability region is not supplied, it is read from the instance store.

* Authentication providers

Support for different authentication providers is introduced.
Authentication provider is a service that supplies AWS access key ID and
secret key.  It is configured by the "authentication-provider"
statement in the configuration file.  The syntax is:

  authentication-provider TYPE [ARG];

TYPE can be one of:

- file
Credentials are obtained from a disk file named by the second
argument.  The statement

  authentication-provider file NAME

is equivalent to

  access-file NAME

of eclat 1.0 and prior.  The "access-file" statement is retained for
backward compatibility.

- instance-store
Credentials are obtained from the instance store.  Second argument
is optional.  If present, it should be the name of the IAM role the
instance is launched with.

* IAM support

If authentication provider is set to "instance-store", its argument
specifies IAM role name.  The authentication credentials are then
taken from the instance store.

* New program: ispeek

Lists content of the instance store.

* Setting UserData instance attribute.

The setiattr (modify-instance-attribute) command automatically encodes
the value of UserData attribute in base64.  A command line option is
provided to read the value from a file.

* lsistat

The default for lsistat (describe-instance-status) command has been
changed to display all instances, no matter their status.  Use the
-r (--running) option to get prior behavior.  The -a (--all) option
has been retained for backward compatibility.
