wdiff 1.0.0 released

I'm happy to announce the next release of wdiff. This release is numbered 1.0.0 in order to reflect the fact that the code has been around for a long time and is therefore considered quite mature. So consider this change not so much as a radical program improvement of some kind, but rather a fix to the fact that some people tend to associate a major version number of zero as an indication of immature software. Although the NEWS entry for this release is a bit longer than for some past releases, in terms of features and bug fixes it might as well have been called 0.6.6.

So what has changed? As user noticeable changes we have updated translations for Updated Dutch, French, Danish and Slovenian as well as a completely new translation file for Ukrainian thanks to Yuri Chornoivan. The code will now give more useful results in case the diff program either cannot be executed or fails for some reason.

Build time improvements include an update of our gnulib imports as well as an extension of the test suite. On the source code level, ther ewas some cleaning up, slightly improved portability with respect to file descriptor duplication, and a unification of coding style accomplished through indent.
