Release notes for 0.5.1
This bugfix release contains many translation updates, and some
* fix a long-standing crasher when using many outputs
* improve icon sizing on 4.13 panel (thx to Simon Steinbeiss)
* improve spacing in settings dialog (#14671, thx to Sean Davis)
* allow %file% in format_song_display (#12973, thx to Armando Ortega)

This release will probably be the last one allowing to build against
libmpd (which is dead upstream), i'll probably migrate the plugin to
libmpdclient at some point...
