Bump version number to 0.2.0 (#1492)

* Change deb installation from 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

To help out users until the version is updated,
the installation instructions have been temporarily
changed to install `cargo-deb` through github.

* Revert cargo-deb install back to use

Since `cargo-deb` has been updated on it is now
possible to just install it from 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 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.

## [Unreleased]
### Added
- CHANGELOG has been added for documenting relevant user-facing changes
- Add `ClearHistory` key binding action and the `Erase Saved Lines` control sequence
- When growing the window height, Alacritty will now try to load additional lines out of the
scrollback history
- Support the dim foreground color (`echo -e '\033[2mDimmed Text'`)
- Add support for the LCD-V pixel mode (vertical screens)
- Pressing enter on the numpad should now insert a newline
- The mouse bindings now support keyboard modifiers (shift/ctrl/alt/super)
- Add support for the bright foreground color
- Add a scrollback history buffer (10_000 lines by default)
### Changed
- Multiple key/mouse bindings for a single key will now all be executed instead of picking one and
ignoring the rest
- Improve text scrolling performance (affects applications like `yes`, not scrolling the history)
### Fixed
- Clear the visible region when the RIS escape sequence (`echo -ne '\033c'`) is received
- Prevent logger from crashing Alacritty when stdout/stderr is not available
- Fix a crash when sending the IL escape sequence with a large number of lines
