Release Notes

A lot of structual changes to split out rendering from SadConsole. You now need to add SadConsole.Host.MonoGame
or SadConsole.Host SFML to your project.

Major changes:

- Object model has changed a lot. Console types no longer inherit from CellSurface and are based on a few different base
classes and interfaces implemented through ScreenObject. Everything in SadConsole is now a ScreenObject.

- Console.Surface represents the cell surface of the console. Extension methods are provided so that you can use
Console.Print and related methods. If you coding inside a Console instance though, the extension methods only work if
you qualify the call with this.Print.

- Font/FontMaster are now merged into a single type: Font.

- Font sizes are always represented in an X,Y value now, and are seperate from the font itself. This means every
console has a Font and FontSize property now instead of a single Font property.

- All UI objects were moved into the SadConsole.UI namespace.

- The theme system was overhauled (and mostly backported to SadConsole v8).

- A lot of misc name changes, swapping out where it specified Console and substituting ScreenObject. For example,
SadConsole.Input.MouseConsoleState is now SadConsole.Input.MouseScreenObjectState

- SadConsole.Global had a lot of changes. SadConsole.Global.Screen is the root console displayed on the screen
to which all other objects are attached to. It is a console and you cannot change this. It makes it simpler for new
users. To disable it, disable the renderer: SadConsole.Global.Screen.Renderer = null. Objects added to the Children
collection will still work; SadConsole will not bother drawing the root console itself.

- Entity is no longer a Console but a ScreenObject.

- App creation is slightly different with a few names migrated and events for draw/update callbacks

 SadConsole.Game.Create(80, 25);
 SadConsole.Game.Instance.OnStart = Init;
 SadConsole.Game.Instance.FrameUpdate += Instance_FrameUpdate;
 SadConsole.Game.Instance.Run();
 SadConsole.Game.Instance.Dispose();
