Release notes for 4.13.3
[Please note that this is a development release.]

Xfce 4.14 Progress:
- Ported from dbus-glib to gdbus (Xfce #14426)

New Feature: Xrandr Display Scaling (via Xfconf)
- Equivalent to "xrandr --scale" to scale the entire display area
- The scale values are stored in xfconf under 
  similar to Position.
- Examples:
  - A value of 1.0 is the default with no scaling.
  - Values below 1 will "zoom in", above 1 will "zoom out". 
    Eg a 1080p monitor and scaling set to 2x2 will have the same real
estate as a 4k panel.

Improved display manufucturer name recognition:
- Refreshed PNP IDs from hwdata
- Added support for VBX (VirtualBox)
- Standardized and shortened manufacturer names
- Updated laptop detection to include eDP in XfceRandr

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed uninitialized scalar variables (CID #292062, #292063)
- Fixed compiler error -Wcast-function-type (GCC 8)

Translation Updates:
Belarusian, Catalan, English (Australia), Galician, Greek, Hebrew,
Hungarian, Japanese, Kazakh, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish,
Swedish, Ukrainian
