SABnzbd 0.5.0 RC3 is released

The journey to the 0.5.0 Final release is nearing the end. Thanks to the feedback from our more adventurous users, a lot of small and some bigger issues have been solved. There were no public RC1 and RC2, because our test group reported some issues that we wanted to solve first.
