Bug#880638: release-notes: Document apt sandbox support [buster]

Package: release-notes
Severity: wishlist

--- News for apt (libapt-pkg5.0 libapt-inst2.0) ---
apt (1.6~alpha1) unstable; urgency=medium

  All methods provided by apt except for cdrom, gpgv, and rsh now
  use seccomp-BPF sandboxing to restrict the list of allowed system
  calls, and trap all others with a SIGSYS signal. Three options
  can be used to configure this further:

    APT::Sandbox::Seccomp is a boolean to turn it on/off
    APT::Sandbox::Seccomp::Trap is a list of names of more syscalls to trap
    APT::Sandbox::Seccomp::Allow is a list of names of more syscalls to allow

  Also, sandboxing is now enabled for the mirror method.

Seems like it would be prudent to mention that in the release-notes
for buster.
