New strings

I can confirm the changes occured in Slovenian (sl) as well and highly
likely in all other languages.
These are so called string exceptions and usually happen because:

a) because a new feature needs to be squeezed in and needs a tiny
amount of tranlsatable strings
b) strings need to be fixed due to a bug
c) bug in the program or outdated translation template which didn't
allow all the strings to be translatable. When the bug is reported a
new template is uploaded resulting in untranslated strings.

In the case of app-install-data new packages have been added to the
software center.

I believe none of us likes these last minute changes. It would be
great to increase awarness of developmers to lower the amount of
string freeze exceptions to a minimum. On the other hand i agree some
important fixes must be done, even if it causes some last minute work.
