Release notes for 1.8.0


This release comes in conformance with the latest Xfce 4.12.

NB: This release is provided with CCode built from Vala and targets
GTK+2 only. GTK+3 requires building from Git.

- Dependencies: match Xfce 4.10 requirements.
- Vala: Compilation fixes, and fixed build for GTK2 and GTK3 to work together.
- GTK3: Added support for GTK3 and theming through GtkCssProvider,
it's still missing features from GTK2 code, and doesn't build a panel
plugin. Build with --enable-gtk3 from Git (dist do not permit to
rebuild from Vala.)
- Settings: New hidden notes-path setting tweakable through xfconf.
- Monitor: Add monitoring of notes files to allow hot-edition and
refresh in notes windows.
- Other misc fixes.
- Updated translations: all of them, lots of them!

Patches welcome!
