+** Add support for R7RS
+Thanks to Göran Weinholt and OKUMURA Yuki, Guile now implements the R7RS
+modules.  As the R7RS library syntax is a subset of R6RS, to use R7RS
+you just `(import (scheme base))' and off you go.  As with R6RS also,
+there are some small lexical incompatibilities regarding hex escapes;
+see "R6RS Support" in the manual, for full details.
+Also as with R6RS, there is an `install-r7rs!' procedure and a `--r7rs'
+command-line option.
 * New deprecations
