Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2017-W19

Last week I finally got to doing something else than bug screening and fixing.

First of all the daily snapshots were improved in order to indicate the snapshot detail on our website, so that it's clear when it has been built and from which Git commit.

I've also looked at long outstanding issue of removing eval() usage from our codebase. The last piece where it has been used for Advisor and there is now my pull request to get rid of that.

Second long annoying thing is that we really don't have theme metadata in some easy to read format. Some of the information is set by PHP code and that's not really something you want to use to just get theme name, author or compatibility (actually the last bit is not really there). I've rewritten this to use JSON and there is pull request to implement the changes.

Probably both pull requests will land into master this week.
