Tiled Qt 0.8.1 released

The 0.8 branch had slowly been accumilating fixes and translation updates that made it worth to release Tiled Qt 0.8.1. Upgrading is highly recommended since there was a crash related to pasting. Also noteworthy is the improved support for mice with fine-resolution wheels like the Magic Mouse. Thanks to all who contributed, and also thanks to Jeff Bland for updating the Mac release!
