REST API Issues Fixed

We have moved documentation for the RIPE Database WHOIS REST API out of the database software to a new location.  

Given the benefits associated with generated documentation, we intend to look for another solution for this at a later stage. 

Since the last release there have been a number of issues reported regarding the REST API. As this is particularly important for users migrating from the old REST service to the new one, we have now addressed these issues in a bug fix release that we will put in production this week, ahead of the next major RIPE Database release. We have listed the issues addressed by this release.

We have also created a 'Migration Guide', designed for users migrating from the old REST API.
