ANNOUNCE: gnome-bluetooth 0.5.1 & libbtctl 0.4.1 development releases

Headline news: prettier UI for the OBEX file sharing, and a couple of
changes needed to support the upcoming Phone Manager release.

gnome-bluetooth is a suite of tools for managing Bluetooth devices and
sending/receiving data under the GNOME desktop.

libbtctl is a GObject-based library for the Bluetooth and OBEX
operations on Linux.  It comes with Python and Mono language bindings.

These releases are development releases, and should be considered
unstable.  They incorporate a large amount rewriting of underlying
libraries for improved reliability and API usability.  Little extra
functionality is offered over the previous release.
