Hi everyone,

Announcing another release in the 3.7.x unstable cycle. Changes since 3.7.3:

- Make use of new libosinfo API to avoid starting installation in language
unsupported by installer media.
- Add smartcard support. If --enable-smartcard support is passed we create new
VMs with smartcard support, or let you add it to old VMs.
- Ensure driver files cache is up2date and unique.
- Once installation is complete,
- Eject CDROM.
- Delete installer files.
- Make the progressbar on wizard's preparation page more useful by showing
progress of media detection and drivers download and keeping user informed
about current activity.
- Adapt to Clutter 1.12 and Gtk+ 3.2.
- Added/updated/fixed translations:
- Assamese
- Belarusian
- Bulgarian
- Estonian
- Galician
- Hebrew
- Hungarian
- Lithuanian
- Norwegian bokmål
- Polish
- Slovenian
- Spanish
- Remove now redundant Vala API files.
