Release notes for 0.4.6
Time for a bag full of bug fixes. Prominently 0.4.5 has a regression
that causes security status to not work at all, so I urge all 0.4.5
users to update immediately.

We fixed potential crasher bugs in the geolocation infobar,
about:version on some systems and opening bookmarks from Unity global
menu in Ubuntu 12.04.

Problems with wrong page icons in multi-frame sites like Google Mail or
Tumbler have been addressed. If WebKit 1.8.0 is available Midori will
use its WebKitFaviconDatabase interface to improve page icon

Chinese users will like that Midori now offers both Simplified and
Traditional Chinese charsets out of the box in case you need to override

Finally, say goodbye to empty tabs due to opening download links with a
target. Kudos to Martin for looking into that!
