encoding version changes.

faster on Mako, 5 times faster on desktop.

* When a thumbnail can not be loaded, return an error from the image
provider rather than substituting in a fallback image. Users can
detect the problem via the status property of the QML Image
component and provide their own fallback handling. (LP: #1324142)
