+* Noteworthy changes in release 0.1.XXX (2016-09-23) [alpha] Until commit 
af59e45: Replaced all occurances of utility to program in book.
+** Bug fixes
+  Linker errors on some operating systems have been fixed (bug #48076).
+  Several memory allocation, checks or redundancies have been fixed: bugs
+  #48453, #48516, #48603, #48611, #48571, #48650, #48657, #48692, #48770,
+  #47866, #48899, #49049, #49007.
+  ImageCrop no longer crashes with very long output file names (bugs #46241
+  and #45380).
+** New programs or headers
+  Table: a new utility to read and write FITS binary and ASCII tables. It
+  can also print the column information (task #13579).
+  Shared libraries and headers are now installed. The libraries can be used
+  in C and C++ programs. This release includes the following headers:
+  `gnuastro.h', `array.h', `box.h', `fits.h', `linkedlist.h', `mesh.h',
+  `polygon.h', `qsort.h', `spatialconvolve.h', `statistics.h', `threads.h',
+  `wcs.h', `txtarray.h' (task #13765).
+  Gnuastro now comes with a script in its top source directory to configure
+  and build Gnuastro (or any other program using the GNU build system) in
+  the tmpfs (on the RAM) for those systems that have it. See the new
+  "Configure and build in RAM" section in the book for more (task #14100).
+** New features
+  MakeProfiles also accepts WCS positions (task #13566).
+  Flat profiles in MakeProfiles can be given a profile specific value. The
+  new `--mforflatpix' option MakeProfile will use the value in the
+  magnitude column as a fixed value for each pixel. This can be very useful
+  in defining a mask, or creating segmentation maps or labeled images (task
+  #14115).
+  MakeProfiles can now use input image as canvas. Instead of specifying the
+  WSC and image size paramteres manually, with the new `--inputascanvas'
+  option, MakeProfiles will get this information (along with blank pixels)
+  from an already existing image (task #14116).
+  Type of output in MakeProfiles and Arithmetic can be specified with the
+  `--type' option.
+  Magnitude error column in MakeCatalog with the `--magnitudeerr' option.
+  Arithmetic now has new conditional (task #13870) and logical operators
+  (task #14153) along with an operator for actions only when conditions are
+  true: `where'. The new `isblank' operator will also enable you to select
+  blank, or masked, pixels (task #14146).
+  The `--noerodequant' in NoiseChisel enables it to detect more sharper
+  profiles by disabling erosion on pixels above a certain quantile (task
+  #14139).
+** Changes in behavior
+  The two MakeProfiles options `--setconsttonan', `--setconsttomin' have
+  been removed (see `--mforflatpix' above for their alternative).
+  MakeCatalog makes clump catalog only when asked (when the `WCLUMPS'
+  header exists in the objects HDU). This can be very useful in cases like
+  aperture photometry, when the object labels are not generated by
+  NoiseChisel and so a clump image doesn't exist (task #14122).
 * Noteworthy changes in release 0.1 (2016-05-30) [stable]
