Upgrade notes

Translations may be somewhat in flux this release.


* restrict external links: if a max_anonymous_links int property is
defined, edits from unidentified users (with no username) containing
more than that number of http:// links will be refused and logged

* delayed indexing: pages now include the NOINDEX meta tag for 24 hours
after an edit, to reduce the chance of spam links being indexed by
search engines.


* show page source links when using thorough search, to help with spam


* make subscribe form help reflect the comments/edits mailout policy
(Jens Nachtigall)

* AnonymousUserSubscriptionInPlone (Jens Nachtigall) fixes #878
anonymous subscription in cmf/plone subscribes "Anonymous User"

* br_for_subscribed_pages_list_on_subscribeform (Jens Nachtigall) If one
is subscribed to several pages, theses pages are on the same line, which
looks confusing. Now it is done as with the page_subscribers list on the
very same subscribeform, ie an "
" is inserted between each page name.

General - i18n

* regenerate pot and po files, and this time with up-to-date Default
comments (#1093, SM, Jens Nachtigall)

* mark_PREVIEW_as_translatable (Jens Nachtigall)

* chinese translation updates (T.C. Chou)

* spanish translation updates (Gaspar Quiles)

General - skins

* subscribeform_remove-unneccessary-span-tags (Jens Nachtigall)
