Version 0.6.0 on 2022-08-31

  Denote is in a stable state.  I consider it feature-complete, without
  prejudice to possible refinements to its existing feature set.  The
  next version shall be `1.0.0'.

User-facing changes

  ⁃ The Denote linking facility can now link to any file that has the
    Denote file-naming scheme.  Before, we limited this feature to what
    we consider "note" files, else the supported plain text formats (per
    `denote-file-type').  Thanks to Peter Prevos for the discussion on
    the mailing list:

  ⁃ Date prompts may optionally use the familiar Org date-selection
    mechanism that leverages the calendar.  This feature is subject to
    the user option `denote-date-prompt-use-org-read-date'.  A date
    prompt is used by the `denote-date' command or, optionally, by the
    `denote' command when the user option `denote-prompts' is configured
    accordingly.  The manual elaborates on the specificities.  Thanks to
    Jean-Philippe Gagné Guay for the contribution in pull request 97 at
    the GitHub mirror: <>.

  ⁃ Leading empty spaces at the `denote' `TITLE' prompt no longer
    produce hyphens: they are simply ignored to keep file names
    consistent.  Thanks to Peter Prevos for the contribution in pull
    request 99 at the GitHub mirror:

    [ Peter has started the process for copyright assignment to the Free
      Software Foundation, though the total contributions are still
      within the permitted boundaries. ]

  ⁃ When linking to files that have no front matter, the link's anchor
    text (the human-readable part) is derived from the file name `TITLE'
    component.  We apply a de-hyphenation and capitalisation of its
    constituent words.  This is not always perfect, but it is better
    than something like `this-is-the-title'.  Thanks to Peter Prevos for
    the original idea in pull request 93 at the GitHub mirror:

  ⁃ The active region is now used as the default value of the `denote'
    command `TITLE' prompt.  The idea behind this
    Do-What-I-Mean-flavoured patch is to be able to take a note about a
    subject that appears in a buffer by simply marking it before
    invoking the `denote' command.

    Thanks to Eshel Yaron for the patch:
    <>.  It is
    below the ~15 line threshold that thus requires no copyright
    assignment to the Free Software Foundation.

  ⁃ The `denote-rename-file-using-front-matter' command now offers to
    save the buffer if appropriate.  In the past, it would simply
    produce an error asking the user to save the buffer.  Thanks to
    Peter Prevos for the contribution in pull request 103 at he GitHub
    mirror: <>.

  ⁃ Fixed the text of the confirmation prompt in the command
    `denote-migrate-old-markdown-yaml-tags'.  Thanks to Abin Simon for
    the patch: <>.

    This patchset also fixes (i) how a tag is identified for the
    purposes of migrating old to new front matter, (ii) the regular
    expression for Org front matter keywords

    [ The total changes are below the ~15 line threshold and thus do not
      require copyright assignment to the Free Software Foundation. ]

  ⁃ Fixed a bug that prevented the creation of new notes.  Thanks to
