Runbooks v1.3 Released

Runbooks v1.3 is now available.  The major new feature this time is a markdown toolbar in the runbook/log editor.  No longer do you need to have markdown memorized because all the various bits are just a click away.  This also includes easy access to the image upload function, so you can much more easily add screenshots and pictures to your runbooks.

The other new feature is the ability to "clone" an existing runbook.  Perhaps you've got a few slight variants on a process, and you don't want to recreate the whole thing from scratch.  With a single button click, you can create a brand new runbook from an existing one.

As always, I love to hear your feedback on how Runbooks is working for you, and what you would like to see added in future releases!
