Cutelyst 1.11.0 released!

Cutelyst the Qt Web framework got a new release, this is likely to be the last of the year and will be one of lasts releases of the 1.x.x series. I'd like to add HTTP/2 support before branching 1.x.x and having master as 2.0 but I'm not yet sure I'll do that yet.

For the next year I'd like to have Cutelyst 2 packaged on most distros soon due Ubuntu's LTS being released in April, and H2 might delay this or I delay it since it can be done using a front-end server like Nginx.

The 1.11.0 version includes three new plugins written by Matthias Fehring, a Memcached plugin that simplifies talking to a memcached server, a memcached based session store, that stores session information on the memcached server, and a static compressed plugin to serve compressed versions of static files.

Besides that I extended the EngineRequest class to serve as a base class for Engine's requests allowing to get rid of some ugly casts and void pointers that carry the real request/connection. This doesn't affect user code as long as they don't implement their own engine.

Setting a Json reply is now a bit simpler now that two overloads directly accepting QJsonObject and QJsonArray were added.

Cutelyst license preamble on files was fixed to state it's LGPLv2.1+, and finally pkg-config is now fully supported.

Go get/break/package/.* it!
