This update fixes a large number of bugs, some of which are critical.

The most critical fix is for a regression in the 1.0 branch which can
cause the whole server to abort.
The overly zealous memory barrier added in 1.0.3 turned out to be a
false alarm and has been reverted.
The rest of the fixes are all over the codebase: platform fixes and
updates, html5 client, dbus handling, system tray, etc.
