[Ann] Pharo launcher 1.6

Hi all,

Pharo Launcher 1.6 has just been released! It is available from http://pharo.org/download.

This new version introduces two major changes:
the list of template sources is now externalized as a Ston file. Pharo Launcher will check regularly (at startup and each day) if there are changes between your local source of templates and the one hosted in Pharo file server. If so, Pharo Launcher will propose you to update your template sources. It is a way to automatically get new official sources or to keep stable, dev versions up to date.
a small UI is now available to manage VMs of PharoLauncher (update, remove, list).
Also, this is the first release done with all sources coming from GitHub (https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-launcher).

Big thanks to all contributors, including issue reports.
