Update to pcb-4.0.0

========================================================================
Release notes for pcb-4.0.0
========================================================================

Dear Users,

It has been quite some time since the last snapshot of pcb was released
in March 2014.

Since then quite a lot of bugs were fixed and new features added, below
this introduction a summary is given of the improvements and additions
since the latest snapshot "pcb-20140316".

This release represents over 480 commits (mostly bugfixes and code
refactoring) and as such this summary clearly is not complete.

This pcb release 4.0.0 has a significant change in the major version
number.

This is done to make a fresh start and to get away from the 1.99z
version with YYYYMMDD snapshots.

Kind regards,

The pcb development team

User experience improvements
----------------------------
- added the command-line option --save-metric-only.
- added escaping of Attribute values.
- added a translation of the Getting Started with PCB for pt_BR.
- added translatable tooltips for toolbar buttons.
- added "Report net length" to Menu -> Info in Gtk.
- added a script for generating a key binding list.
- added tooltips in the GTK HID UI.
- the puller no longer crosses unplated holes.
- solder/component outer layer names changed to top/bottom.
- pcb now uses a tilde instead of a dash for backup filenames.
- corrections in the user documentation.
- the position "delta" display no longer forces the GTK HID window to
  grow.
- write time in ASCII locale into exported files.
- allow for up to 10000 dpi on png exporter output.

Plugins
-------
- added smartdisperse for dispersing elements better, contributed by
  Ben Jackson.
- added relocate for relocating elements, contributed by Jean Richard.
- added RenumberBlock() and RenumberBuffer(), contributed by DJ Delorie.
- added teardrops(), contributed by DJ Delorie.

Exporters
---------
- added a netlister conforming to the IPC-D-356 standard, contributed by
  Jerome Marchand.
- changed "as-shown" to "screen-layer-order" in the png and \ 
eps hids.

Footprints library
------------------
- added a SC88A footprint.
- added a LQFP80-10 footprint.
- added QFN24_5 and TQFN24_5 footprints.
- added a SOD523 footprint.
- the SOT325 package had a wrong numbering.
- renamed the SOT325 footprint to SOT353.
- in the ALF footprint the drill holes were too tight.
- an infinite loop in the SIL m4 macro was fixed.

Developer experience improvements
---------------------------------
- made a start with adding Doxygen developer documentation tags in the
  source files.
  A pcb.dox configuration file is available in the "doc/doxygen"
  directory so developers can build the documentation there by invoking
  "doxygen pcb.dox" from the CLI.
  This is not done by configuring with --enable-docs, which is solely
  reserved for the generation of User documentation.
- added numerous fixes in the win32 target.

Notes for early adapters
------------------------
In the git repository two tags have been added to allow for checking
out of pcb-4.0.0 at the branch point (git checkout pcb-4.0.0-base) or at
the release point (git checkout pcb-4.0.0-RELEASE).
This is in line with tagging done in former snapshots.

Changed dependencies
--------------------
- autoconf 2.60 --> 2.69.
- gettext 0.14 --> 0.19.3.
