Also controller.Session is now a map[string]interface{} which means you can place any object that can be serialized to a string.
    • โž• Added http mux support you can now integrate Revel with packages that have their own HTTP muxers. This allows you to integrate with Hugo, Swagger or any suite of software that is out there.

    controller.Session is now a map[string]interface{} (previously was map[string]string) this means existing code needs to cast any values they pull from the session

            return c.getUser(username)
