Release Notes for 3/3/09

Way back on Tuesday we pushed a new version of Kiva. Here's what we did:

-Lots of behind the scenes tweaks (think accounting systems, tweaks to our volunteer translation software, some API stuff, etc)
-We increased the loan limits for entrepreneurs in some countries (mostly Eastern Europe/Central Asia and the Middle East) from $1200 to $3000 reflecting the changing realities of microfinance in those regions.
-We're also laying the groundwork to add more video content to Kiva!
