First release candidate of Silhouette 2.0

After 7 months of work, I'm pleased to announce the first release candidate of Silhouette 2.0 for Play 2.3. If no bug was found in the next two weeks, then this version will be released as the final stable 2.0 version of Silhouette.

The major changes in this new version are:
  • Improved documentation
  • Better mobile support by implementing token based authenticators(JWT, bearer token) and other mobile friendly changes
  • More stateless by changing all cache based implementations to client side cookie based implementations
  • Testkit implementation to easily test Silhouette based applications
  • WebSocket support with the help of request handlers
  • HTTP basic authentication support with the help of request providers
  • Two factor authentication with Clef
  • OpenID support with Steam and Yahoo providers
  • Dropbox OAuth2 support
  • Improved social profile builder implementation

The Silhouette Seed and the Silhouette Angular Seed templates were also updated to work with this release.

Please report any issue found with this version in the Silhouette issue tracker.

I would like to thank all the supporters and followers who provide code and give feedback to the project.

Thank you!
