Publii updated with hotfix 0.28.1

It's been a few weeks since Publii's development was moved onto GitHub, and the improvements have been flowing steadily since. Many thanks to all our users who have let us know about any bugs they dug up; there's plenty of fixes included in this release such as a fix to allow the use of FontAwesome in the post editor.
