Release Foswiki-1.0.10

Major issues

Task Ref Affects Description Fix
Item9699 Configuration The configuration file is appended with each save instead of being updated. Changes are still applied because Foswiki reads the last item for duplicated entries, but obsolete information is left in the file and the file will grow with each save. Available for testing. Replace lib/Foswiki/Configure/FoswikiCfg.pm and backup lib/LocalSite.cfg before testing. Fix prevents further duplication and removes duplicated items from LocalSite.cfg. Issue is fixed in 1.1.0.
