NEWS for Version 0.1.0

This is the initial release of the ProteanOS Development Kit, in
development since 2013-10-22.

This is a preview release for testing, providing only the "install" and
"shell" action commands.  Currently, prokit approximately matches
miniprokit in features, though the latter is still recommended for
normal use.
