Adds a new timestamp to a node for when the node became published.

Many publishing systems are more concerned about the time a node was published than when it was created. I have seen a few solutions to this issue posted which simply modify the nodes 'created' time once the node transitions to the published state; but our application requires maintaining the nodes created time so a new field was required.

The module has a single admin setting to set whether the 'published' time will only be the first time a node becomes published or whether it will reset if the node goes from published to unpublished and then back to published again.

It also allows a user with sufficient privileges to set the 'published' time to what ever they choose.
