    Webpage: link to tarball of most recent commit added
    Just before merging any commit into Gnuastro's 'master' branch, I do a test
    build, and run 'make check' to make sure everything is workingly finely. As
    a side-effect (since a tarball is created in the process), I put the most
    recent tarball in a fixed URL that people who find bugs or suggest tasks
    can get the version with their suggestion implemented.
    Until now, but this URL is useful for other people who always want the most
    recent version, or when they loose/forget the URL address. So In the "Test
    releases" section of the webpage, I added a few sentences and put the URL
    there so it is publicly available.
    This was suggested by Joanna Sakowska.
