Release notes for 0.2.2

Time for Midori 0.2.2.

Bookmarks can be imported from Opera, Arora, Kazehakase, Epiphany and
other browser using XBEL. The XBEL support was improved in terms of
performance and compatibility with other applications.

Colourful Tabs now work in combination with the Tab Panel. Delete
Private data includes Web Cache which it didn't before. And if you have
a small screen or mobile device, Open panels in separate windows can be
useful. Correct ordering of History and Trash were fixed. The Shortcuts
dialogue display issues were fixed.

The options 'Show in toolbar' and 'Open as web app' were implemented for
bookmarks. So you can selectively decide what bookmarks or folders to
have in the bookmarkbar. And if you mark them as 'web app' bookmarks
open in a separate process.

Several improvements related to portability and compatibility were
applied, for Hildon and Win32. Build fixes for certain Glib and GTK+
versions were applied. libnotify is now a build-time dependency. 

As always, look at the ChangeLog for more details.
