Release notes for 0.7.1

* New feature: The windows in windows view gained support to show also 
  their child windows, e.g. open/save dialogs etc. This feature is 
  themable and enabled by default in default theme. But it can also be 
  disabled at all by the user in xfdashboard settings application, 
  e.g. for performance reasons. The user's decision to disable this 
  feature in the settings overrides anything defined at the theme 
  used. (GH #132)
* Rewrote XfdashboardButton by splitting it into a XfdashboardLabel 
  class and make XfdashboardButton a sub-class of it. XfdashboardLabel 
  is exactly the same what XfdashboardButton was but it does not emit 
  the "click" signal.
* Splitted XfdashboardLiveWindow into two classes. 
  XfdashboardLiveWindowSimple just shows a live preview of a window 
  when possible and XfdashboardLiveWindow is a sub-class of it but 
  adds a title and controls layer (close button) on top of it.
* Remove themable property 'show-window-content' from 

  Just replace the following CSS:
      show-window-content: <true or false>;
    XfdashboardLiveWorkspace XfdashboardLiveWindowSimple
      display-type: <icon or live-preview>;
* The CSS class "primary-monitor" will be added at or removed from
  XfdashboardStageInterface depending on the primary state of 
  associated monitor. With this CSS class the stage interface of the 
  primary monitor could be themed different as the other non-primary 
  (secondary) ones.
* Pop-up menu items must now be sub-class of XfdashboardPopupMenuItem. 
  No normal actor are allowed anymore. XfdashboardPopupMenuItemButton 
  is such a new pop-up menu item which can be used as clickable 
  labels. A fully themable menu item separator is 
* Pop-up menu items can now be enabled and disabled.  
* Fixed a typo in default applications array (#12842)
* Smaller bug-fixes
* More API documentation
