Summary description:  A beamer inner theme which reproduces standard beamer blocks using tcolorboxes

Announcement text:

 Version 0.1 2022-08-26:

 A new inner theme for beamer which reproduces standard beamer blocks
 using tcolorboxes. The look and feel (rounded/sharp corners, shadows
 and colours) will automatically adapt to which other themes are loaded.

 Version 0.2 2022-08-27:

 ### Changed

 - internal changes to colour handling
 - internal changes to the colour shading below the title (rounded blocks only)
 - styling of normal tcolorboxes to match the colour of beamer blocks (overwriteable via `\tcbset{}`)
 - using `\tcbuselibrary` to avoid possible option clashes

 ### Fixed

 - font colour for block body in default theme
