News in 5.2.0, 2021-09-03

GtkSourceView 5.2.0 is the release corresponding with GNOME 41.0 for
GTK 4-based applications. We expect performance improvements when
combined with GTK 4.4's NGL renderer, especially on HiDPI systems.

Changes since 5.1.0

 * Add support for drawing a highlight line between the gutter and
   text area. kate.xml uses this to more closely match Kate.
 * Python 3 is now preferred over Python 2.
 * Fixes for moving words.
 * A new scheduler API to help with background buffer work
 * Improvements to YARA syntax.
 * Translation updates.
