Direct2D renderer for VCL

Direct2D renderer for VCL has been created.

This renderer is drastically faster then GdiPlus, especially on complicated polygonal features.

Version 11.3 will use this render by default (starting from next unstable). Meanwhile it must be manually enabled by:

GIS.Renderer := TGIS_RendererVclDirect2D.Create ;  // do not free this directly! viewer manage time-life of renderers
