Major changes that may affect performance and require softcode tweaks:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 -- Removed dbpuller tool. Use Omega flatfile tool instead.
 -- guest_site configuration option is renamed to noguest_site.


Feature Additions:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 -- Add 256-color support via COLOR256 flag, %x<>, ansi(), and
    translate().
 -- Add 24-bit color support.  That is, the database and string
    functions can represent 24-bit color.
 -- Support for MXP/HTML-style tags representing 24-bit color.
 -- IPv6 support.
 -- Add password_methods configuration option.
 -- Add default_charset configuration option (Issue 575).
 -- Add ATAN2().
 -- Add pairs for ACCENT() through U+017F.
 -- Extend writetime() and exptime() to show years.
 -- Add colordepth() - reflects how much color a target can accept.
 -- Update to Unicode 5.2.
 -- insert(), ldelete(), and remove() updated to take output delimiter,
    list of positions, and negative positions.
 -- Updated log() to accept optional base parameter.
 -- Add baseconv() and update pack() and unpack() to provide
    compatibility options with PennMUSH.
 -- Add give, kill, and page to NOSPOOF message.


Bug Fixes:
~~~~~~~~~
 -- Fix @dbclean to not strip attribute owner and flags on attributes
    that it re-numbers (Issue 621).
 -- Fix access of uninitialized memory during dbconvert when @queuemax
    is set on player object (Issue 623).
 -- db_check can potentially crash if exit destination is HOME.
 -- Stricter telnet option parsing.
 -- Avoid using negative initializers in UTF-8 run-copy table to fix
    gcc 3.4.2 and VC -W4 warnings (Issue 573).
 -- Detect and revert to de facto telnet behavior for MUSHClient
    (Issue 625).
 -- Fix space delimiter regression from 2.6 (Issues 620, 628, 629,
    630, 631, 632, 633, and 634).
 -- Use CXX instead of CXXCPP in Makefile for modules.
 -- Protect ConvertToLatin() from buffer overflow (Issue 637).
 -- Return message from shl() and shr() when negative shifts are
    requested.
 -- Two @program requests to the same player could mix the A_PROGCMD
    from one with the registers of the other.
 -- Fix color bleed regression (Issue 650).
 -- Add potential fix for hang in export_TextHtml (Issue 652).
 -- Fix the 'doubling' of text that sometimes occurs in HTML
    conversion.
 -- Fix lack of normal text at beginning in HTML conversion.
 -- Add asserts and potential fix for hang in export_TextHtml
    (Issue 652).
 -- Fix the 'doubling' of text that sometimes occurs in HTML conversion.
 -- Fix lack of normal text at beginning.
 -- Change the version headers in ./Backup.
 -- For terminfo(), report #-1 NOT CONNECTED for Hidden things.
 -- Should use %llX instead of %X for 64-bit type (Issue 656).
 -- Fix HTML color bleed via @mail (Issue 653).
 -- Fix color use in text snippets containing &, <, >, and " for HTML
    clients (Issue 655)
 -- Map BULLET (U+2022) which Word uses to an asterisk.
 -- Add COLOR256 flag to flag list topic.
 -- Add upper/lower-case support for a handful characters including
    U+1E9E and U+00DF (Issue 661).
 -- Fix @QueueMax (Issue 651).
 -- Fix @decompile with colored names, @moniker, and @alias (Issue 577
    and 602).
 -- Don't @decomp @mail-related attributes.
 -- Include BETA file and remove ALPHA file.
 -- For ldelete() and replace(), ignore duplicate positions.
 -- Fix @decomp so it avoids translating every attribute -- wrapping
    those that need it in @wait 0={} to make quoting work right.
 -- Disallow %` (Issue 664).
 -- Avoid operation outside the domain of modulus.
 -- Using @mail is clearer than check.my.mail.
