The main toolbar and menubar have been replaced by a headerbar and menubutton, saving a significant amount of precious vertical space and using the horizontal space better..

We dropped our use of CoGL APIs, namely path_round_rectangle which caused crashes on various Linux distributions shipping a broken version of CoGL.
Pitivi has been ported to Python 3.
Text wrapping in the rendering progress dialog and title editor has been fixed.
Effects can now be reordered within a clip's properties.
