Bug#985602: Document the new /usr/bin/open command

Package: release-notes
Tag: bullseye


I would like to document the new `/usr/bin/open` command in the "what's
new" section of the release notes.  Here is a description.

A new `open` commmand is available as a convenience alias to `xdg-open`
(by default) or `run-mailcap`, managed by the update-alternatives(1)
system.  It is intended for interactive use at the command line, to open
files with their default application, which can be a graphical program
when available.

Have a nice week-end,
