ANNOUNCE: Cheese 3.3.5 released

The video format was switched to WebM by Alexey Fisher, which should make video recording a lot smoother than Ogg Theora. Deleting multiple images has been improved by Adrian Zgorzałek to only show one confirmation dialog. Patricia Santana Cruz added checking for the nautilus-sendto dependency with PackageKit as part of her Outreach Program internship.

what's changed in 3.3.5?
version 3.3.5
  - Use default PackageKit interaction modes
    Do not hardcode the PackageKit interaction modes, so that distribution
    defaults are used, for example for whether to show a confirmation dialog
    when requesting package installation. See the comments on bug 668072 for
    some further reasoning.
  - Disambiguate GLib.DBus in Cheese.Window
  - Use PackageKit for nautilus-sendto dependency
    The user has the option to install nautilus-sendto runtime dependency
    with PackageKit, in case it is not already installed.
    Fixes bug 668072.
  - Fix Slovenian help translation
    The incorrect closing tag caused a build failure, reported by Luca
  - Post-release version bump to 3.3.5
    As Cheese provides shared libraries, it is more friendly to bump the
    version after a release. As requested by Frédéric Péters.
  - Keep generating thumbnails for Theora videos
  - Check for VP8/WebM codecs during configure
  - Initial switch from theora/ogg to vp8/webm
    It is time to go webm :)
    Fixes bug 564957 and 666718.
  - Fix configure check for Xtst
  - Adapt to use new cheese_init and cheese_gtk_init
    Additionally, use EXIT_SUCCESS and EXIT_FAILURE when exiting.
  - Add init functions to libcheese and libcheese-gtk
    Adding wrappers around clutter_gst_init() and clutter_gtk_init() reduces
    confusion for API users, as well as reducing link-time dependencies.
    Provides a clean fix for bug 668292 and bug 667884.
  - Check nautilus-sendto dependency in configure
    Check whether nautilus-sendto is installed in the configure script. This
    is only required in order to use the sharing functionality, so a warning
    is presented if nautilus-sendto is not found.
    Fixes bug 668072.
  - Mimic Nautilus' behaviour when deleting files
    Show one dialog to ask for confirmation of operation. For each error
    show a dialog and allow to skip all errors, skip this error or stop
    deleting using Cancel.
    Fixes bug 664180.
