Boxes 3.3.90

We are pleased to announce a new release of Boxes.

Changes since

- Box creation wizard:
   - Present bootable medias and user's ISO files on 'Source' page. For
     fetching/tracking user's ISOs, we make use of Tracker.
   - Teach the Wizard to accept 'qemu..://' sources.
   - Move to 'Preparation' once file/media is selected.
   - Display notification against errors during 'prepare' and 'create' steps.
     In case of 'prepare', we go back to previous step since user is very
     likely to be able to fix the issue.
   - Add mnemonic accelerator to 'Continue' button.
- More reliable tracking of installations. Previously, Boxes used to forget
  ongoing installations once user quit the application and that would lead
  to installations looping forever.
- Don't take post-installation steps for saved domains. Saved domains are
  stopped as well so them being stopped doesn't mean that first boot is done
  and its time to perform post install setup.
- Launch new domain in fullscreen, unless express installations is going to be
  performed on it.
- Make user deletion work for saved VMs.
- Leave fullscreen when going back to collection view.
- Fix the white triangle stats graph.
- Ability to disable source by manually editing source file. Useful for
- Added/updated translations:
  - Polish
  - Italian
- Some other functional and non-functional improvements and fixes.
