      • Fix finding local packages on Windows located on drives other than C
      • Fix infinite loop in import scanner when file is on a different drive than source root

      • You can now apply all the settings for Accounts.config in Meteor.settings.packages.accounts-base. They will be applied automatically at the start of your app. Given the limitations of json format you can only apply configuration that can be applied via types supported by json (ie. booleans, strings, numbers, arrays). If you need a function in any of the config options the current approach will still work. The options should have the same name as in Accounts.config, check them out in docs..

      • You can now define services configuration via Meteor.settings.packages.service-configuration by adding keys as service names and their objects being the service settings. You will need to refer to the specific service for the settings that are expected, most commonly those will be secret and appId.
