Release notes

Put full /google_adsense directory on /blocks directory, log as admin and wait for the install to make changes on database. Make sure you don't have any adblocker installed in your browser, or the ads will be blocked (unsurprisingly)

Tested mainly with Moodle 2.0 and slightly with Moodle 2.1, it didn't seem to break with the beta of 2.2
