Release notes for 0.3.0

* Improved CSS parser to allow defining constant values which can be
  referenced with '@' followed by the name of the constant to use.
  (Issue #7)
* Improved CSS parser to allow usage of built-in function which can be
  called with '@' followed by the name of the function to call and
  a comma-separated list of function parameters enclosed by brackets,
  e.g. @rgba(100, 100, 100, 1.0); Currently only coloring functions
  are implemented. (Issue #8)
* Updated documentation for theming unstable version of xfdashboard to
  reflect latest changes in CSS (see above). For your convinience here
  is the URL:
* Introduced a new layout manager called XfdashboardDynamicTableLayout
  which is mainly be used for views using the icon mode to stop layout
  problem which are cause by using ClutterFlowLayout before. This new
  XfdashboardDynamicTableLayout is a layout manager which layouts children
  in a dynamic table grid. Rows and columns are inserted and deleted
  automatically depending on the number of visible child actors. Usually
  it will prefer more columns over rows. (Issue #28)
* Fix problems with focus manager and focussed actors when they
  are going to be hidden.
* Allow some ClutterActor properties to be stylable, i.e. 'x-expand',
  'y-expand', 'x-align' and 'y-align'
* Hopefully improved search speed a little bit by reducing loading and
  parsing '*.desktop' files in XfdashboardApplicationsSearchProvider
* Select first result item in search view when a search was started
  to allow starting the top-most result in current search by pressing
  the key 'ENTER'. (Issue #29 and #30)
