ANNOUNCE: xfce4-xkb-plugin 0.8.0 released

There are two reasons:

1. Migration to xfconf as you supposed. After a little discussion in 
#xfce-dev I decided that migration for this small amount of settings 
will be overkill.
2. Plugin is external now. For me this transition caused automatic 
removal of this plugin because it has the different name and the 
different launch method in terms of panel (at least I guess so). There 
is even no place to include migration code if I wanted to.
