We should probably have a change log in the tree to list the changes
that end users (of weston, libweston, libweston-desktop, the apps, etc.)
might be interested in. Particularly we can list changes to e.g. command
line options, config file options and such which might require people to
change their configs.

All the earlier releases I just punted with a link to the list of
release notes. I skimmed through all the changes since 1.12.0 was
released and wrote them down to give an example of what we might list
here. I probably missed something, too.

The heading is "The Next Release" because when we cut a release, we
don't know what version the next release will be. Right now we do know
it will be 2.0.0, but in general we don't know.

When doing a release, I would expect one to just add a new heading with
the release number, leaving "The Next Release" section empty again.
