Perhaps we can outline Major Features and Innovations separately. This
release is notable for the number of genuinely new ideas implemented,
so that's worth making something of even if the advanced features
themselves need a little more explanation. Or Perhaps have
"Innovations" as a major feature and then a comma list of the names of
them.
