Overview of changes from gThumb 2.13.2 to 2.13.3

New features and user visible changes:

* Added ability to import photos from a folder. This is equivalent to
  importing from a removable device, with the difference that the
  user can select a folder instead of a device.  Useful to reorganize
  by date or tag an old set of photos. (#452764)
* Find duplicates: added ability to eliminate all the duplicates at
  once leaving only the newest or the oldest one. (#342887)
* Show the current disk free space in the status bar.
* Make the keyboard editing shortcuts work from the file list as well.
  When the file list or the image viewer are focused the user can use
  the following shortcuts to activate some editing tools:
  h: enhance; l: flip; m: mirror; r: rotate right;
  <shift>r: rotate left; <shift>c: crop; <shift>s: resize.
* Resize image: added buttons to set to the original image size or the
  screen size (#639012)
* Added "copy to" and "move to" commands in the folder list as well.
* F2 renames the folder if the folder tree is focused (#448588)
* Web albums: always use subfolders. removed the relative option from
  the dialog (#624334)
* Allow %F (filename) and %C (comment) in Web Album headers and
  footers (#166579)
* Adjust colors: added a preview check button to compare the image
  with the original (#566040)
* Save and restore the settings in the change date dialog (#451803)
* Added Ctrl+Q to close all the windows.
* Automatically select the last viewed file on startup if "Go to last
  visited folder or catalogue" option is active.
* Ask confirmation before deleting a command/script (#627475)
* Increased the number of preloaded images. preload the next 4 and the
  previous 4 images, instead of the next 2 and the previous one.
* Improved insertion of files in catalogs: when using the paste
  command the files are inserted after the last selected file;
  when using drag&drop the files are inserted in the current position
  as when moving files inside a catalog. (#371697)
