New features: redesigned homepage, API and RSS improvements

Hi everyone. You probably already noticed that we have a shiny new homepage. If not, check it out. Heaps of work went into discussing what was important for us to show and tell on our homepage, laying those things out on the page, and then actually building the new page and making sure it loaded fast enough to use. Enormous thanks to the literally dozens of people who took part, from the initial discussions and UX (user experience) exercises, through the development and testing.

Along with this code push we also have some improvements/cleanups/fixes to the JSON API and to our RSS feeds. Of particular interest in the RSS feeds is the new seeds RSS so if you want a convenient feed of what seeds are being listed on Growstuff (whether available to trade or not), that's where to find it.

We've got more coming soon, so stay tuned.
