GNOME Boxes 3.9.2 Fixes Fedora 19 Issues

This unstable release brings lots of fixes and performance improvements

The development team behind the GNOME Boxes project announced a few days ago the second unstable release of the upcoming GNOME Boxes 3.10 application, a GNOME utility that allows users to manage remote or virtual systems.

First of all, we should mention that version 0.2.7 of the libosinfo library is now required for compiling GNOME Boxes 3.9.2.

Second of all, GNOME Boxes 3.9.2 fixes many bugs reported by users from the previous unstable release, such as password/username entries focus issues on each key press, unwanted '_' in the wizard toolbar button labels, as well as a regression that disables GNOME Boxes from connecting to the same box.

Moreover, weird errors are no longer displayed when the user is entering a URI in the wizard, the correct size of 'read-only' toggle is now displayed in VNC box properties, and the timezone configuration is now correctly set on new VMs, which also fixes Fedora 19 express installation issues.

GNOME Boxes 3.9.2 includes a workaround for the bug #699376, related to a dialog being blank after first usage, allows users to change the URI of non-connected remote displays, and fixes the sorting method of boxes that were never accessed.

Non-express installation issues with the Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems were also fixed, as well as a regression in setup->review->setup->review wizard transition. The 'Express Install' label in wizard is no longer insensitive, and the display toolbar is now always visible.

Last but not least, the following translations have been added, updated or fixed in this unstable release of GNOME Boxes: Hebrew, Japanese, Norwegian Bokmål and Spanish. For more details, please read the NEWS file inside the archive.
