Partial support for internationalization

Sirius 3.1 introduces partial support for internationalization: all literal strings from the runtime part of Sirius are now externalized and can be localized by third parties by providing the appropriate “language packs” as OSGi fragments. Note that this does not concern the VSM editor’s UI, the VSMs themselves, or the parts of the UI inherited from Eclipse/EMF/GEF/GMF and other libraries and frameworks used by Sirius.

Some API changes were required to enable this. While technically breaking changes if interpreting strictly the OSGi versioning rules, the major version number of the impacted bundles was not incremented as the changes only concern classes that should not impact the vast majority of users. Most breaking changes concern the plug-in/activator classes from each bundle. They are:

New plug-ins

The following UI plug-ins has been added:

These plug-ins own the extension definitions related to perspective, views, newWizard, menus, contextual menus, editors and preference pages that were previously in org.eclipse.sirius.xxx.ui plug-ins.
Now, downstream projects can define features that do not contain org.eclipse.sirius.xxx.ui.ext, allowing them not have all that functionalities they may not want.
