I already wanted to make a fixed build about the GTK3+ vs. GTK2+ issues
of KiCad in Debian experimental while MiniDebConf in Hamburg but didn't
get it in time.

So I prepared on the last weekend the recent RC2 release and uploaded
this all to Debian experimental. This upload has switched back to
linking KiCad against wxWidgets with GTK2+ binding but also dropped the
SCRIPTING_PYTHON support due missing GTK2+ support for wxpython.

My poor testing hasn't shown any particular regression but maybe there
are corner cases we need to take before going further to Debian

I also updated the footprints, the schematic symbols and the 3D models.
The templates aren't have got a update since RC1 so no new upload here.


So if people on testing or unstable want to use these versions they need
to install them explicitly, even if they already have installed a
previous version from experimental, there is no automatic update normally.
