Autolinking and macOS enhancements

This major MindForger release brings:

Autolinking (automatic interlinking) injects links (Notebooks and Notes names ~ Markdown document names and section names) to your remarks. Released implementation is cmark-gfm and Trie based to achieve desired performance and ensure autolinked Markdown format integrity. It can be further improvement with additional research (like hierarchical/scope centric multi-link selection) and implementation enhancements (like Aho-Corasic text search).

Shortcuts, drag & drop and ability to paste image (even an image selection) improved on macOS. Big thanks to Petr Kozelka who borrowed MacBook to improve and fix macOS implementation!
