Breaking change: New font API

If you don't use Rio default font configuration you will be affected by this change.

A new API has been introduced to select fonts, now you can configure even different font families for "regular", "bold", "italic" and "bold-italic".

size = 18

family = "cascadiamono"
style = "normal"
weight = 400

family = "cascadiamono"
style = "normal"
weight = 800

family = "cascadiamono"
style = "italic"
weight = 400

family = "cascadiamono"
style = "italic"
weight = 800

Native Tabs (macOs only)

Native tabs have arrived for MacOS users.
