Gotcha.  I've updated the features section with your suggestions.
It could probably use additional improvements.

For API changes, I know there were a couple new calls added, but has
there been anything else?  Any structs changed?

I've added the bug links where there were bug reports and improved the

fixes that have gone in don't have associated bug reports, and the
changelog entries don't have this info.

Anyway, updated patch to follow.
