Thousand and one bug fixes

Thousand and one bug fixes, that’s what this release turned out to be. A
long run of tweaks in various places rather than short and explosive.
Kudos to PaweĊ‚ for his great work, notably with bookmark import and
export, including Netscape HTML import, and a new infobar prompting to
install userscripts and -styles if the User Addons extension is
activated.

A rather big move is Launchpad as the new bug tracker. I have tested it
and am convinced of the superiour usability over FlySpray and Bugzilla.
And this addresses the frequently raised concern of using a unique bug
tracker, so it should be easier to report bugs with an existing account
and a familiar interface. The old bug tracker still exists and will
remain in place for a while, but new bugs should be reported at
Launchpad. The code repository and translations remain with Xfce and
Midori is still fully usable and supported on it, and dozens of other
platforms. Kudos to Dan and Michael for moving over a huge number of bug
reports.

The new default search engine is DuckDuckGo, https://www.duckduckgo.com
a slick and powerful engine with a string focus on data privacy and no
logging whatsoever. Midori uses the SSL version out of the box.
This change is not automatic for existing configurations, and Google as
well as Yahoo remain available from the menu and as tokens ‘g’ and ‘y’
respectively.

Problems with ‘,’ and ‘.’ for link search and inline search with Russian
keyboard layouts have been fixed. Options for languages and panel layout
have been simplified. Netscape plugins no longer show up in the
Extensions panel due to repeated confusion with users. URIs keep spaces
encoded as %20 to allow copying to other applications. And context
menu-related problems have been fixed.
