Summary description:  Extensive support for hypertext in LaTeX

Announcement text:
 This hyperref version
     * sets unicode to true by default for all engines, so now also for pdflatex.

 It cleaned up various language patches:
     * removed patches for russian, new version is on ctan
     * removed patches for danish, dutch, finnish, portugues, usorbian,
       swedish, slovene, macedonian, ukrainian.
       This doesn't affect the output, but can give warnings in the log
       until the language files adapt their definitions.
     * removed an outdated patch for \texttilde
     * moved language patches to an extra file for easier handling
     * removed \HyPsd at BabelPatch and the related code as no longer
       needed with a current babel.
     * removed patches for ngerman/german: these are now in babel-german
     * removed patches for french, unneeded according the
       babel-french maintainer.
     * removed patches for greeknumerals, the code is now in

     * added danish to autoref language (PR 159)
