coreutils ptx(1)
   command for generating permuted indexes, is now installed.  It has
   long been part of the source distribution.
+o The s (ms) macro package now enables the formatter's "no-space mode"
+  after ending displays (`DE`) and equations (`EQ`); this is to improve
+  the fidelity of rendering of historical ms(7) documents such as
+  Kernighan & Cherry's "Typesetting Mathematics".  This change means
+  that display distance spacing (the `DD` register) overrides paragraph
+  spacing (the `PD` register) instead of accumulating with it.
 o The s (ms) macro package supports a new string, `FR`, which defines
   the ratio of the footnote line length to the current line length.  The
   default expression is "11/12", eleven twelfths of the normal line
