2014-05-23 $INFO[] images in (fixed/wrap) list / panel containers will use aspect=stretch by default now

for example:
Code:
<itemlayout>
    <control type="image">
        <left>0</left>
        <top>0</top>
        <width>100</width>
        <height>50</height>
        <texture>$INFO[ListItem.Icon]</texture>
    </control>
</itemlayout>

this image will now be stretched to 100x50 px.
(previously the aspect ratio of the image was kept)

2014-05-23 label alignment change inside containers

for labels inside containers, <left> will now always mean the left side of the control.

2014-06-15 Fixed: upper-casing of accented characters

xbmc never handled the uppercasing of accented characters correctly.
to work around this issue, several skins started adding capitalized font files.
this should not be needed anymore.

2014-08-09 Use an edit control in the keyboard dialog

instead of a label control (id=310), you now need to use an edit control (id=312) in the keyboard dialog.
