Catalogue service and tagging enhanced

We have released a new enhancement that improves the tagging of the ViSH resources and the catalogue service as well.
Now its possible to search/filter by tags in a non-case-sensitive way and taking into account internationalization.

The catalogue service of ViSH can work now using the enhanced ‘matchtag’ mode.
The wiki has been updated with instructions to set up the catalogue to work in this mode: https://github.com/ging/vish/wiki/Setting-up-a-ViSH-instance:-The-application_config.yml-file .

Workshops: new educational resources for ViSH!
