      Release Notes: This is the first separate release of the libLicense Gnome integration. Since the bundled 0.3 release, the GTK license chooser widget has gained an explicit "No license" option with some slight behavior changes, including a warning for unknown license attribute combinations. The Nautilus properties page now displays "No license" when a file has no license instead of the system default license.
