This should be in release notes in the hardcopy/html documentation. I'd like to
work on integrating these soon after v6.3 is released, and then do updates
there. That way, there will be a place for people to keep track of significant
changes and improvements which would affect a user.

Much of the new docs which is release-specific is like to old docs. Ugly, but I
simply didn't have enough time to rewrite _all_ 200 pages :)
