Highlighting based on type (Enterprise Edition / Cloud Edition)

As an addition to the conditional formatting which was introduced with OpenProject 8.0, it is possible to highlight work package rows based on the work package type. This way you can for example highlight bugs and errors in a list of tasks.
Additionally, it is possible to control which attributes are highlighted at the same time.
