Menubarless, extended and also on Windows

Heya,

it is once again update time for Midori. Performance of working with multiple windows was
improved. The download dialogue and the Transfer panel were enhanced. An annoying bug
was fixed that rendered Mouse Gestures virtually unusable.

Alt +n now does switch to the n-th tab as asked for by several users. Also a common question
was single instance support, we now have a socket based implementation if libunique is not
available on the system. Another popular question in its own right was using Midori with no
menubar, for which now there is a menu button that appears upon hiding the menubar and
provides features missing from the context menu.
Through two new extensions finally keyboard shortcuts can be edited comfortably and a
toolbar editor makes customizing the toolbar layout a walk in the park.

This is notably the first release that is supported on Win32. A lot of improvements to the build
system and miscellaneous tweaks to handle Win32 specific aspects were implemented. It isn’t
quite perfect yet but certainly very usable.
