- Allow to customize box memory and maximum disk size before creating it.
- More responsive box removals.
- Make stopped/saved boxes easier to distinguish. Saved boxes show a
  grayed out thumbnail of their display and stopped boxes show a black
- Add the ability to use an additional ISO with extra Windows drivers for
  use during unattended installs. For now, Boxes can use it to install
  the Windows system to a virtio disk. It also needs to be made available
  manually (this will be improved at a later point), 'make win-tools.iso'
  can be used to download it, explains
  what to do with it.
- Tweak auto-hiding of fullscreen toolbar.
- Improve box display scaling (when using a very recent spice-gtk).
- Various UI fixes and improvements.
