Epiphany 0.5.0

Code changes

* Port to EggMenu API
* Make GaleonShell subclass GaleonEmbedShell.
  Now also embed services like downloader
  are able to reference it. (Marco)

   mozilla versions) (Marco)

  useful for toplevel nodes (Marco)

New features

* Ability to drag bookmarks, smart bookmarks and topics
  to the toolbar (Marco)
* Optional Go button (Dave Bordoley)
* Help support (Patanjali Somayaji) 

Interface improvements

* Site icons in topics menus (Johan Dahlin) 
* Site icons on tabs (Christian Persch)
* Set icons for History, Find, Bookmarks, Preferences dialogs
  (Dave Bordoley)
* Bookmarks editor redesign: better interface to assign multiple
  topics, better editor interface using a toplevel window with a
  menubar, file manager like editing capabilities,
  ability to open the editor independently,
  "most used" special topic.
  They certainly need love, but I think we have a 
  good direction now.
  (Marco, Dave Bordoley, Xan Lopez)
* Properly save maximized/unmaximized state of the
  main window (Marco)
* Remove spinner configuration and default to Gnome spinner,
  this should be part of gnome icon theme at some point. (Marco)
* Remove bookmarks with delete key (Xan Lopez)
* Alphabetical sort of topics and bookmarks in the editor
  (Xan Lopez)
* Remove tab autocompletion to avoid accessibility issues
* Focus the location entry when opening a new window and do not
  put the url in it, so the user can more easily insert
  the location he wants to load.
  Try to not disturb the user when he is editing the url with
  focus removals.
  All these works more or less well depending on
  mozilla versions :/
