Overview of changes

The focus of this release are stability fixes.

Important stability fixes across the tree related to Python 3.

The GRASS GIS 7.8.3 release provides more than 198 fixes and improvements with respect to the release 7.8.2.

A number of macOS-specific, more or less critical bugs have been fixed. The perhaps more notable improvement is the now working vector digitizer (G78:g.gui.vdigit).
