MacOS Human Interface Guidlines - changes -> Fixed in SVN

Reported by: virtualbox Owned by:

At least in the german localization, the app is not completely accurate, according to apples human interface guidlines (and thus what mac users expect)

The "Check for updates" menu entry, should be moved from "Help" to "Virtualbox"

The "File" menu is translated with "Datei" in the german localization. Mac applications use the term "Ablage" in germany, instead of "Datei".

The "global preferences" menu shouldn't be in the "File" menu, but instead it should be linked to the "Preferences" item in the "Virtualbox" menu (Preferences -> "Einstellungen" in german)

the "virtual media manager" should for consitancy reasons also be moved to the "virtualbox" menu, instead of the "File" ("Datei"/Ablage) menu.
