Translators: Please update your translations, the developer will supply the locale archive separately.

Note: There's a known regression since r1106 (or so): maps.google.* is slightly broken (some options / buttons don't have any effect). It is a generic issue in WebKit when JIT is disabled, and it was reported to their bugtracker. Fabien will provide a new version when this is fixed.

* Updated to OWB SVN r1158.
* Added a GUI for content blocking (windows->content blocking). Regular expressions are accepted, and entries can either be white or blacklisted.
* Added "Block images from <linked domain>" context menu item for pictures.
* Save and restore the list of downloaded/finished/failed files (optional).
* Sessions now also restore scroll offset in pages.
* Added support for external transfer animations:
+ PROGDIR:resource/transferanim.png and PROGDIR:resource/transferanim_tab.png will be used if they exist.
+ The expect format is a 32bits PNG with square frames (horizontal layout). The rate is set to 30ms per frame.
* Enabled user stylesheet. PROGDIR:resource/userStyleSheet.css will be used if it exists. This user stylesheet allows changing default form controls look, for instance (amongst many other things).
* Reworked history popup list to show favicons (optionally), title and url on 2 lines.

* Don't change active tab after closing an inactive tab.
* Bookmark groups can now also be added to quicklinks. In that case, a popup menu will display group entries.
* Allowed editing builtin mimetypes attributes, such as text/html and co (but think twice when modifying them, of course).
* Middle clicking an entry in history or bookmark now opens the link in a new tab.
* "Copy Image" context menu item now copies the actual image content to clipboard, instead of its URL.
* Many fixes in the new cookie system (thanks sszymczy).
