Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2016-W50

Last week was more focused on bug fixing in phpMyAdmin itself, though some of the libraries (like motranslator) got their attention as well. I've also finally looked at forgotten pull requests with new themes.

Especially OS X users will love fixing long outstanding bug with MySQL running in lower_case_table_names=2 mode. The MySQL server in this case returns table name in lower case in some situations and thus it didn't correctly compare with mixed case one. Hopefully this is fixed for now and I looking forward to another MySQL weirdness.

Another important fix is that future 4.6 releases will be compatible with PHP 7.1. We had the fixes ready in master branch, but 4.7.0 will be released in about three months, so it's better to push the fixes for new PHP version earlier (note that most of the errors were just in the testsuite, most of the code will work just fine).
