Using JBake for the user manual

The user manual is now build with JBake!

I always felt that I should use a static page generator for documentation of my open source projects, but never found the right tool which integrates with my workflow and especially with java.

A fiew days ago I stumbled upon JBake and was very excited about this tool. You can think of it as the "Jekyll of the JVM". And indeed, it is exactly what I ever searched. I am now able to bundle the documentation with the source files, code and document the same time in the same tool, use easy and powerful templates with GSP and build a beautiful website using bootstrap. So, after some days of playing around with jbake I decided to switch the manual to it. Hope you like it.
