News Box Manager -- v3

Description
v3.0.0 (and later) of News Box Manager builds on the previous versions of the plugin, adding the following features for Zen Cart 1.5.6 and later:

- Enables the creation of up to four (4) different types of 'news', each separately manageable.
- Separate admin tools for each type, enables different admin profiles to manage each news type.
- An additional tool enables the management of all news types.
- Two (2) storefront sideboxes are now provided, enabling different news types' to be displayed in different locations.
- Uses the zc156 admin's bootstrap support for its admin-tool displays.
- Adds search and sort controls to the admin-level tools, making it easier to manage your news articles.
- Adds controls to the admin's article-listing, enabling you to make a copy of an article and/or to move an article to a different news-type.
- Changes the storefront news_archive and more_news pages to be all_articles and article, respectively.
- Previous pages' header-processing remains to redirect access to those pages (permanently) to their new homes!
- Watches for admin-level language-addition and -removal actions, adjusting the articles' news-content accordingly.

Additional changes:

- An article must have non-blank title and content in all the store's languages (previously only one language was required).
- On installation, any article found to have a blank title or content in any of the store's languages is disabled.
- Due to the significant changes to the various language files, the German language files have been removed from the distribution.
