    * Change deb installation from crates.io to git
    There have been a number of issues an PRs opened since
    the cargo-deb installation does not work with the latest
    version from crates.io.
    To help out users until the crates.io version is updated,
    the installation instructions have been temporarily
    changed to install `cargo-deb` through github.
    * Revert cargo-deb install back to use crates.io
    Since `cargo-deb` has been updated on crates.io it is now
    possible to just install it from crates.io and build Alacritty's
    deb without having to rely on github.
    * Update dependencies
    This fixes an `illegal hardware instruction (core dumped)`
    error when building in release mode.
    * Remove redundant copy when selecting font_key
    * Bump version number to 0.2.0
    Since the Scrollback branch introduces some major changes, this bumps
    the version number from 0.1.0 to 0.2.0.
    The versions of Alacritty have not been updated regularly to this point,
    so the scrollback branch is a good point in time to start updating
    Alacritty's version on a regular basis.
    Further changes to the readme, like dropping the 'alpha' status and
    updating it to 'beta' could also be introduced with this branch. This
    way there will be a clean cut which updates everything as soon as
    scrollback is merged.
    Building versions is another thing which would be a good thing to start
    reasonably quickly. However starting this on the main branch after
    scrollback has been merged seems like a more reliable way to move
    This fixes #1240.
    * Add a CHANGELOG file
    A CHANGELOG file has been added to offer a bit more transparency over
    which features have been changed, added and potentially removed in
    There are various formats available for the CHANGELOG file but the most
    common and sensible one seems to be the one defined by
    https://keepachangelog.com/en/1.0.0. Following the template proposed by
    this it should be possible to create a clear CHANGELOG which makes it
    simple for new contributors to figure out exactly which formatting
    should be used for it.
    Since there have been quite a few changes to Alacritty already, not all
    changes have been added to the changelog. However a few entries have
    been ported just to give a bit of an example what the format should look
    like. This also helps with the 0.2.0 version since it will not be
    completely empty in the changelog.
    This fixes #1534.
    * Update CHANGELOG
    This updates the CHANGELOG to include the changes introduced by
