Notable bug fixes:
* Fix bug with non-JPG cover art getting downloaded but never
converted/used (BGO #388162)

* Memory leak fixes for the ListView

need to be ironed out here, and much of this belongs as integration

state when GIO support lands in the GNOME backend (Gabriel Burt)

this mainly facilitates the OS X build environment (Aaron Bockover)

external applications wishing to integrate with Banshee's playback,

* Support localization when running uninstalled (BGO #393046,
Bertrand Lorentz)
* 5 bugs were FIXED since 1.3.2
