Tagaini Jisho 0.2.6 released

A stabilization of the 0.2 series, this release brings improved ordered lists, a new kana selector widget that allows beginners to study kana characters, HTML/Javascript export of entries suitable for doing flashcards on mobile phones, German translation of the user interface, a nicer detailed view, a much improved build system that uses the best of both CMake and CPack, a new icon theme, and many others improvements and fixes. Although minor releases may still occur in this branch, the development effort will be concentrated on the 0.9 series.

A lot of work has also been done in order to improve the build system, with great results so far. Third-party data are now downloaded transparently, the build process is now flawless on both Linux and Mac, and CPack integration makes it easy to produce Mac, Debian or RPM packages from the source code.
