that makes use of new automated installation API of libosinfo.

- The 'pause' button should only be enabled if any of the selected
  machines support saving and is not already in saved state.
- Don't lose tracking of installation if user quits Boxes during installation.
- Exit to collection view if the VM goes to a non-running state
- Exit to collection view on display disconnect only for current item.
- Don't crash when running Boxes while it's already running.
- Make it actually possible to pause VMs under installation.
- Add support for changing the CD-ROM device/ISO from properties.
- Add troubleshooting log viewer to system properties.
- Add usbredir on/off status to configure output.
