Summary description: Coloured boxes, for LaTeX examples and theorems, etc

Announcement text:

- bug fix (#114): 'IfBooleanT', 'IfBooleanF'
- bug fix (#117): 'widget' set 'toprule at break' and needed the breakable library
- (bug) fix: style 'marker' set 'breakable' and needed the breakable library
- (#113) 'capture=hbox' applies '\@parboxrestore' now to allow e.g. hbox style
    listings inside indented environments like itemize
- (#2) support 'hbox' for 'minted' listings
- (#115) New default vertical space options
        'before skip balanced', 'after skip balanced', 'beforeafter skip balanced'
  NOTE: These options replace the current default options
        'parskip', 'noparskip', 'autoparskip'
  WARNING: Old documents may need adapted manual page breaks where used.
           Otherwise: Use \tcbsetforeverylayer{autoparskip}
           to restore the old behavior!
- 'before skip' and 'before skip balanced' do not insert glue now, if
  the tcolorbox is the first element in a minipage (or sourrounding tcolorbox)
