Pig 11 release notes - draft

In the Pig 11 release I'd like to include some specifics in the
RELEASE_NOTES.txt file. Julien compiled this list (which I've tweaked a
bit). Please give it a read and let me know if we've missed anything big,
or mis-stated anything. Maybe an absentee agenda item suggestion for those
at the meetup? :)

(I ran into some distractions this past week with cutting a release
candidate, but doing so is still high on my list. Stay tuned...)
