Release notes for 0.3.0
Thousand and one bugfixes, that's what this release turned out to be. A
long run of tweaks in various places rather than short and explosive.
Kudos to PaweÅ for his great work, notably with bookmark import and

keyboard layouts have been fixed. Options for languages and panel layout
have been simplified. Netscape plugins no longer show up in the
Extensions panel due to repeated confusion with users. URIs keep spaces
encoded as %20 to allow copying to other applications. And context
menu-related problems have been fixed.
