The new 17.2.0 releases of SMPlayer and the optional icon package "smplayer-themes" are now in the main repository.

The themes package updates the themes Papirus and PapirusDark, and add the theme ePapirus, so it's possible to have it now match MX 16's default theme. SMPlayer's changes include:

- Fix for YouTube.

- The option to delete files from the disk in the playlist is back but
it's disabled by default (you can enable it in Preferences -> Playlist
-> Misc.

- On Linux SMPlayer now uses a different web server, included in the
packages, to serve files for Chromecast. If you installed the package
webfs you can uninstall it now since SMPlayer won't use it anymore.

- New translation: Norwegian Bokmål.
