Updates to Kraken and Keel

Over the weekend, Kraken, my lightweight, open source boilerplate for front-end web developers, got updated to Normalize v4.x.

Keel, my theme boilerplate for WordPress developers, is built on Kraken and was also updated. In addition, Keel picked up a more accessible dropdown navigation.

SVG support in the Media Uploader, formerly baked in Keel, has been removed and is not supported via a free plugin.
