intltool 0.17 is available

A new release of the intltool package is available. The intltool package
is a set of tools for translating the contents of data files using the
gettext translation framework.

Because of the ability to depend on a specific version of intltool, most
intltool and xml-i18n-tools users will want to upgrade.

Since we didn't announce 0.16 I will bring the changes from both

Some of the changes in intltool since version 0.16:

   - Improved the option checking code and fixed some bugs at the same 
     time (Darin)
   - Treat directories starting with po- as being translation 
     directories (Kenneth) 
   - Improved the Perl version check (Stefan Kost)
   - Made it possible to depend on specific intltool releases
     (Kenneth, ERDI Gergo, Frank Belew)
   - Updated manual pages, plus added a new one for intltool-update 
     (Stefan Kost, Kenneth)
   - Fixed the rule for ".ui" files, that was only half done 
     (Darin, Kenneth)
   - Better error messages when we encounter an old cache file (Darin)
   - Handle C comments in intltool-update --maintain (Darin)
   - Don't merge fuzzy translations (Darin)
   - Handle XML tags inside translatable messages extracted from XML 
     files (Sven Neumann)

Some of the changes in intltool since version 0.15:

     executable (Darin)

     to msgid (Darin)
   - Add glade2 support (James Henstridge)
   - Update intltool-merge man page (Stefan Kost)
