Here are the release notes for XFCE 4.16. They are mostly summarised from the release blog post (https://xfce.org/about/news/?post=1608595200), XFCE 4.16 tour (https://xfce.org/about/tour) and changelog (https://xfce.org/download/changelogs/4.16/).

I wasn't sure if it would work better as prose or bullet points, so I put the same content in both, so take your pick :)

Hi, thanks :) I think the bullet point version is more in line with what we usually do in release notes, so I'll use that version.

There's a conflict so I'll merge this manually and close the PR.
