[ANN] Emergency bugfix release: Org mode 9.7.5

Dear all,

I just released Org mode 9.7.5 that fixes a critical vulnerability.
The release is coordinated with emergency Emacs 29.4 release.

Please upgrade your Org mode *and* Emacs ASAP.

The vulnerability involves arbitrary Shell code evaluation when
previewing attachments in Emacs MUA (gnus-based: at least, mu4e,
Notmuch, Gnus itself) or when opening third-party Org files. All the
earlier versions of Org mode are affected.

Note that the vulnerability solved in this release has nothing to do
with recent Org 9.6.23 release
(https://list.orgmode.org/871q7zbldp.fsf@localhost/). It existed since
long time ago and was discovered by accident.
