Customizing CaRIne

CaRIne is fully customizable. The language can be selected by the user and CaRIne keeps a track of the size and position of each window. For example, the size and location of the main window or the project manager window are saved when stoping CaRIne and retrieved when starting it again. Moreover, it is possible to change the look and feel by selecting a new theme.
