I guess we should make a release again... 4.3

So much for my plans of going on a time based release schedule...

But still, let's talk about 4.3

We have a ton of new things since 4.3 - not necessarily all the things
that I hoped I'd be working on (cough - UI for git backend - cough) but
there's quite a bit of progress elsewhere.

- OSTC3 and Suunto Vyper configuration (and I hear rumors about OSTC2)
- visual tracker of gases used
- saturation display in the info overlay
- cut'n paste for dive data
- lots of planner work, CCR should be supported now
- hidpi improvements
- first steps towards cleaning up the tank switch / gas switch semantics
- tag filtering / multi filtering

Clearly, a couple of these need to be completed / cleaned up.

- Robert's saturation display - I like the little graphic in the info
  overlay - I think the graphs at the bottom are too confusing and am
  considering removing them
- Tomaz is telling me that tag filter / multi filter support will receive
  a major update, soon
- I think CCR support is not quite ready, yet, but I don't know what
  exactly is missing to make this useful to people
- tank / gas switch is better, on a Uemis you can now have two identical
  gas mixes and correctly switch between them - for libdivecomputer based
  devices this isn't supported, yet, but Jef said that the necessary
  changes will make it in to libdivecomputer 0.5

What else am I missing. I.e., what big new feature did I forget to
mention, what are you guys working on that we should include in 4.3.

And as always, just to tease people, here's the commit list...

The all time #2 and #3 contributors clearly are... slacking... and the two
GSOC students who worked on the main code base are in the top 4!
