Major release and backwards incompatibilities: FireWorks 1.4.0

Hi all,

We have just pushed a major update to FireWorks, v1.4.0. Users should be wary of the following important changes:

* mlaunch is now "rlaunch multi". See docs (S. Dwarnakath)
* For FireTask, we now suggest you use Firetask (more consistent naming) - (A. Jain)

In addition, we have made the following improvements, many of which are brand new features. We hope you will check them out!

* Adds the FilePad, a way to store files in GridFS. See docs for more details (K. Mathew, A. Jain)
* Add query ability to frontend (M. Aykol, D. Winston)
* Add ability to "pause/resume" fireworks in addition to existing "defuse/reignite". See docs (S. Dwarnakath)
* Add sort ability in frontend (D. Waroquiers)
* Misc frontend improvements (D. Winston, M. Aykol, A. Jain)
* Add ability to move run dirs, i.e. update the database with location of runs after they are moved (A. Faghaninia, A. Jain)
* Add ability to qlaunch a particular fw_id (J. Montoya)
* Py3 compatibility (X. Qu, A. Faghaninia)
* Fix lpad admin maintain (shenjh)
* Fix to _pass_job_info (D. Waroquiers)
* improved docs (J. Montoya, M. Aykol, A. Jain)
