NEWS: starting the news for 2.10.0.

Note that it might be a 2.10.0 RC2 instead. It will depend on whether we
decide to make a second release candidate (better process and safer) or
release earlier and go forward.

Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.0 RC1 to GIMP 2.10.0
=======================================================
Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.9.8 to GIMP 2.10 RC1
====================================================
Core:
- Symmetries are saved as image parasites.
- New runtime option --show-debug-menu in order to make the File >
Debug menu visible.
- Do not show invisible actions in search dialog.
- Do not dither image mask and channels for imported images.
- Various optimization for painting and display (WIP).
Configurability:
- In Preferences > Dialog Defaults, new section "Filter Dialogs"
created to customize various common features of filters, such as
recent settings and advanced color options.
- Do not default to last used filter settings, but allow this behavior
in Preferences > Dialog Defaults, with checkbox "Default to the last
used settings".
Tools:
- Color used in the Smudge tool is now added to the color history.
Assets / Resources:
- Adding 4K UHD in document templates (and fixing 4K DCI).
Building:
- New --enable-bundled-mypaint-brushes option in configure to decide
whether to use the configure-time installation path of MyPaint
brushes, or use a path relative to GIMP installation prefix
(typically for bundled binaries, such as on Windows or macOS).
- Detect freetype2 using pkg-config (`freetype-config` is on its way
out in various distributions apparently).
