Overview of changes

A series of new features and stability fixes, manual improvements, and a few language translations have been added. Importantly, the new version is backward compatible with older 7.x releases.

The GRASS GIS 7.6.2 release provides more than XX fixes and improvements with respect to the stable release 7.6.1.

Important change: The default raster compression has been changed back to ZLIB, even if ZSTD compression is available, because not all currently supported systems provide ZSTD with standard package management tools, and because problems were encountered regarding compatibility with different ZSTD 1.3.x versions.
