Log Message:
api: new function geany_api_version

This allows plugins to detect the API version of Geany at runtime. This enables
soft dependencies based on Geany's API version, perhaps using a new feature
with a fallback for older API versions. Previously the only alternatives
were hard-depending on a more recent Geany version or ignoring new features.
