    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!
