as I discovered the point is that you have to include config.h in every 
file that contains translatable strings, actually #define 
GETTEXT_PACKAGE "geany-plugins" is the only line that is needed from it. 
Previosuly it worked without it somehow.

if GETTEXT_PACKAGE is not defined, textdomain(NULL) returns NULL, i.e. 
there is no textdomain set, with GETTEXT_PACKAGE it returns "messages" 
while I expected to see "geany-plugins" here.

I tried to understand how i18n is realized in Geany but I couldn't find 
any textdomain call in Geany sources.

2Enrico: every plugin that do not include config.h in a file with 
strings seems to be untranslated now. As I mentioned above it worked 
without it earlier so I suppose other plugins can also miss this include 
and therefore be untranslated but I didn't check.

So two ways so far:

1. include config.h everywhere it is nessesary
2. look up what has been broken till 0.20

which one to use?
