Hi all

The raster_resampler branch is now merged. The following things are new:

- For users: resampling functionality, changed GUI in the raster 
properties tab

- For developers: There is a new class QgsRasterRenderer which decides 
how a raster is drawn. Each renderer has its own dialog to enter the 
settings and it is possible to define new renderer classes in the core 
or in plugins (they need to register in QgsRasterRendererRegistry).

Note that the raster resampler branch changes the project file format. 
1.7 project files are automatically transformed into the new format by 
the function QgsProjectFileTransform::transform1700to1800. This means 
that project files from 1.8 are not automatically transformed. My 
suggestion is to define the current version as 1.8.1, then I may change 
the transform logic to also include 1.8 project files. Any objections?

There are a number of existing bug tracker tickets about raster 
symbology. Please check if they are still true with the current version 
and assign them to me. And of course I also expect new issues popping 
up, so fill new tickets for them.
