   - Byte-compilation of Emacs lisp files could fail spuriously on Solaris,
     when /bin/ksh or /usr/xpg4/bin/sh were used as shell.
+* Testsuite work:
+  - The test cases no longer have the executable bit set.  This should
+    make it clear that they are not meant to be run directly; as
+    explained in t/README, the can only be run through the custom
+    'runtest' script, or by a "make check" invocation.
+  - The testsuite has seen the introduction of a new helper function
+    'run_make', and several related changes.  These serve a two-fold
+    purpose:
+      1. Removing brittleness due to the use of "make -e" in test cases.
+      2. Seamlessly allowing the use of parallel make ("make -j...") in
+         the test cases, even where redirection of make output is involved
+         (see automake bug#11413 for a description of the subtle issues in
+         this area).
+   - Some other minor, miscellaneous changes and fixlets.
 New in 1.13.2:
