=========== 3.0.0
    - PBSQuery
           * Cleaned up some old lines of code which didn't do anything.

           * Changed the returnvalue of getqueue, getnode and getjob. Now
             they return an instance of the object, instead of a dict.
             This is API change so we bumped the version to 3.0.0
           * Now the getnode-function accepts the short name as well as
             the long name as an argument.

    - pbs.py, _pbs.so, PBSQuery.py
           * Fixed a memory leak when used in daemon mode
