HappyBase 0.3

Release date: 2012-05-25

New features:

* Improved compatibility with HBase 0.90.x

* In earlier versions, using :py:meth:`Table.scan` in combination with HBase
0.90.x often resulted in crashes, caused by incompatibilities the
underlying Thrift protocol.
* A new `compat` flag to the :py:class:`Connection` constructor has been
added to enable compatibility with HBase 0.90.x.
* Note that the :py:meth:`Table.scan` API has a few limitations when used
with HBase 0.90.x.

* The `row_prefix` argument to :py:meth:`Table.scan` can now be used together
with `filter` and `timestamp` arguments.

* Lower Thrift dependency to 0.6
