Nautilus Actions : New release available (V0.4)

I worked hard all this weekend to deliver this new V0.4 release with a maximum of new features but unfortunately I was slowed down in my task by a really weird bug featuring nautilus and some mysterious race conditions that take me all my sunday afternoon to debug without any success.

Hopefully, I received some great help from Nicolas "HappyPeng" Centa on #gnomefr that finally find the bug at the end of the afternoon. In fact, it was a bug in nautilus and it was reported with a patch to solve the problem. I hope it will be accepted...

The result is that I've finally had to postponed the feature I was working on, but a huge number of others have been commited althought, as you can see in the ChangeLog.
