Unicode support

Goanna now supports Unicode filenames in a principled way. Until now, we allowed Latin-1 names in the Visual Studio versions of Goanna by using an ad hoc encoding. While that approach was effective for many languages, it left us unable to support languages with non-Latin-1 character sets.

Thanks to the authors of the Camomile library for the OCaml language, which allows us to work with Unicode directly.

For Eclipse and command-line users of Goanna, you get Unicode support if your terminal program is set to use UTF-8. That seems to be the default in recent Linux distros.

    I’ve just confirmed that the latest build of Goanna Studio for VS2010 successfully analyzes a project on the Chinese-language version of Windows 7 x64.
