Bugs:
- Show the log window only when a real error happened, since some
  users weren't able to know why Bitmask had failed and they didn't
  think of opening the log by themselves.
- Aborting the establishment of a new VPN connection didn't work
  properly, and some users were confused because they wanted to cancel
  the start and Bitmask didn't do it, although the UI stated the
  opposite. That has been improved, detecting the real status of the
  VPN connection much better.

- If the user doesn't "trust this application", bitmask doesn't try to
  connect to the VPN anymore.

  as "Waiting for connectivity")

  experimented problems with it during connections, staying "on" while
  the VPN was "off", and put an icon with a progress indicator around
  it.
- Code tests to avoid this bugs are revived, since some problems the
  users were experiencing had already been fixed in the early days of
  the project.
- Optimized the layout to various devices, so that UI remains
  consistent across sizes, screen resolutions...
- Localized the app to Spanish, and simplified the login/logout
  feedback so that localization can be polished.
- Improved wording, both in Spanish and in English.
- Updated gradle libraries
