svn log -vr 4900:HEAD  

gives the list of the log messages of all 128 commits up to now,
many of which should *NOT* be mentioned in 

There is still a large amount of changes we should mention
I have committed a small/partial outline of those new features I
quickly found / remembered.
... well, forgot the recent "find R in Windows"

Please do add and edit!
