Summary description: Convenient mode selection in Beamer documents

Announcement text:

The changes in this release mainly relate to handout mode, specifically 
the \handoutlayout command:

  - It is now possible to adjust the margin around slides.
  - A new option, 'align', can be used to even out the distances in-between slides, and between slides and the page edges.
  - The way defaults are set for \handoutlayout no longer triggers a bug in pgfpages.
  - Fixed a bug in how page numbers are calculated (the number could be off by one when using nup=2, 6 or 8).

There have also been some documentation improvements.
