New resume builder features: email address and outline mode

The Resume Builder just got a couple updates:

  1. Email address: you can now include your email address in the "contact" section of your resume. This means that just about all the contact details you could want - address, phone number, email address, and websites - can now be included in your resume. To protect your privacy, your email address is hidden by default, so you'll have to use the new "outline mode" to enable it.
  2. Outline mode: the menu bar now includes a new "outline mode" that can be used to organize your resume. You can now rearrange and show/hide not only entire sections (such as "experience", "summary" and "contact") but also individual subsections (such as a single job, skill, or piece of contact info). As mentioned above, the email address is hidden by default, so if you want to make it visible, go into outline mode, click the plus sign next to the contact section to expand it, and click the "x" next to email address to enable it.
