NEWS: add various missing changes worth to be listed.

- OpenCL disabled by default.
- Manual localization choice in preferences.
- Abbreviated layer mode names.
- Free Select tool commit with double click.
- Color tags inherited from parents.
- "Wheel" dynamics also works for "Rotation" feature.
Preparing for 2.9.8 release. Hopefully I did not forget any other
worthwhile change!

- Color Picker now reads values under cursor in local windows making
it work at least inside GIMP Windows on Wayland platforms with no
color-picking capabilities (for instance GNOME/Wayland) yet.
- OpenCL is now disabled by default. Depending on graphics cards and
drivers, OpenCL acceleration is often slower than multi-threaded
implementation, and can also sometimes be "glitchy".
- Now possible to open a locally-installed manual different from the
GUI localization. The manual language choice can be customized
through preferences when several manuals are installed. If no manual
language has been selected already and no manual for current GUI
localization is available, choice of help language will be proposed
at first call to the manual.

- Use abbreviated versions for long layer mode names. In particular,
replace the "(legacy)" suffixes with "(l)" in the abbreviated
versions, still showing the unabbreviated names in the full list.

and restored across sessions.
- All transform tools: it makes no difference now whether a modifier is
pressed before of after mouse button press/release.
- Free Select tool selection can now be committed with double click as
well (only through Enter key before). This allows smoother workflows
on some setups, and in particular when no keyboard is available
(e.g. tablet-like computers).
- Layer group children now inherit the color tags of the parent by
default, unless specific color tags are assigned. Inherited color
tags show in a less saturated color than assigned ones.
Painting:
- When copying a generated brush, GIMP now copies its 'Spacing' property.
- Rename "Wheel" dynamics labels as "Wheel/Rotation". It turns out
that graphics pens with barrel rotation feature use the same axis as
the wheel feature. Therefore they already work in GIMP. Unhide the
feature with more obvious labels.
