time to do a new one.

Here is a summary of changes since the 1.3.0 release
* Lot of improvements in feed parsing and in chccking of updates.
* Add multi-selection in lists (podcasts and episodes).
* Podcasts can be renamed.
* Downloads can be canceled.
* Played episodes older than a specified amount of days (defined in
Settings) can be auto-deleted on every startup.
* Episodes can now be tagged as "(un)deletable" in page "Episodes". All
episodes with a status "undeletable" will be ignored when auto-deletion
of old played episodes will be done on startup.
* Enabled OGG audio format support. Ogg support has been added 3 months
ago, but it was so far disabled due to a bug in GStreamer oggdemux
pipeline element.
* New internal widget: Notify dialog. It is used to notify user when an
operation, that can take some time, ends.
