Gerrit email messages are made easier to read by sending HTML content parts in addition to the existing text email content.

Mail templates can now be written using Closure Templates (Soy). Mail templates written in Velocity (VTL) are deprecated but still supported. Support for VTL will be dropped in the next release.
