  + Command line tools:

    o Add multi-line PROJ string export capability, and use it by default 
      projinfo (unless --single-line is specified) (#2381)

  + Coordinate operations:

     o +proj=col_urban projection, implementing a EPSG projection method
       used by a number of projected CRS in Colombia (#2395)

     o +proj=tinshift for triangulation-based transformations (#2344)

     o Added ellipsoidal formulation of +proj=ortho (#2361)

  + Database

    o Update to EPSG 10.003 and make code base robust to dealing with
      WKT CRS with DatumEnsemble (#2370)

    o Added Finland tinshift operations (#2392)

    o Added transformation from JGD2011 Geographic 3D to JGD2011
      height using GSIGEO2011 (#2393)

    o Improve CompoundCRS identification and name morphing in VerticalCRS
      with ESRI WKT1 (#2386)

    o Added OGC:CRS27 and OGC:CRS83 CRS entries for NAD27 and NAD83
      in longitude, latitude order (#2350)

  + API

  o Added temporal, engineering, and parametric datum
    PJ_TYPE enumerations (#2274)

   o Various improvements to context handling (#2329, #2331)

   o proj_create_vertical_crs_ex(): add a ACCURACY option to provide
      an explicit accuracy, or derive it from the grid name if it is
      known (#2342)

    o proj_crs_create_bound_crs_to_WGS84(): make it work on
      verticalCRS/compoundCRS such as EPSG:4326+5773 and
      EPSG:4326+3855 (#2365)

    o promoteTo3D(): add a remark with the original CRS identifier 

    o Added proj_context_clone (#2383)

  Bug fixes

  o Avoid core dumps when copying contexts in certain scenarios (#2324)

  o proj_trans(): reset errno before attemptying a retry with a new
    coordinate operation (#2353)

  o PROJJSON schema corrected to allow prime meridians values with
    explicitly stating a unit (degrees assumed) (#2354)

  o Adjust createBoundCRSToWGS84IfPossible() and operation filtering
    (for POSGAR 2007 to WGS84 issues) (#2357)

  o createOperations(): several fixes affecting NAD83 -> NAD83(2011) 

  o WKT2:2019 import/export: handle DATUM (at top level object) with 

  o WKT1_ESRI: fix import and export of CompoundCRS (#2389)
