gnome-docker 0.1 released

GNOME docker 0.1

GNOME application for notifying laptop users about the state of their dock
station and the possibility to undock the system via software, either from
the tray icon, or via a hotkey. In future, it will also care about
hotpluggable devices placed on the dock station, such as hard drives and
DVD/CD drives.

It is meant to be well designed and to fit into the GNOME desktop. So an
important aim for gnome-docker is to be shipped with GNOME upstream.

Currently, it has the following features:

 - tray icon showing the current status and with functionality to undock a
 - handling of hotkeys to undock a laptop (e.g. FN-F9 on ThinkPads)
 - xrandr support to enable/disable external outputs attached to the dock
   station (experimental, evaluating how it fits there)
 - User notifications about the state of the dock station. E.g.: "Now it's
   save to remove the laptop"

As gnome-docker forges ahead, the linux kernel has to improve and has to
provide sensible date for userspace to make use of, like exporting which
devices are inside a dock station.
