Hi David,

There's always one!  :-)

OK.  I'm hoping we'll be pushing out releases at under a year between
them so it's not long to wait after 18+ years.  Looking at NEWS, I
wonder if the

    OBSOLETE FEATURES -- what has been axed this time
    DEPRECATED FEATURES -- what will die in a future release

order should be jiggled a bit.  I don't know how many read past the
interesting "new features" bit.  As it's probably brief, perhaps
"deprecated features" could be first, headed by a warning saying notice
is hereby given.  Or else a warning and pointer to the later section
given in the introduction.

I wonder if there's anything listed as deprecated in NEWS for 1.6 and
earlier that remains to be axed for 1.7.  A few spot checks suggests
lots of them were done just after 1.6's release.

Cheers, Ralph.
