Here's a overview of the changes, but if you want to see more check out the compare view on GitHub.
Idomatic clean up: All files and tests have been refactored and ran through
Removed reflections throughout packages: We used reflection in a few situations to retrieve elements from structs and execute functions. Those reflections have been removed in favor in better interface design

API is now a new package ./api: The RESTful API is now in a seperate
apipackage and must be explicitely imported for use in your Gobot program.
All platforms examples are in ./examples: All examples has now been moved into a shared
Replaced martini with net/http: We no longer use Martini as our API server, and now use the standard net/http package with pat as our pattern muxer.
Replaced ginkgo/gomega with system testing package: We now use the system
testingpackage for testing
