+<h3 id="2010-08-11">2010-08-25</h3>
+This release includes changes to the build system that will likely require you
+to make changes to your environment variables and Makefiles.
+All environment variables are now optional:
+ - $GOOS and $GOARCH are now optional; their values should now be inferred 
+   automatically by the build system,
+ - $GOROOT is now optional, but if you choose not to set it you must run
+   'gomake' instead of 'make' or 'gmake' when developing Go programs
+   using the conventional Makefiles,
+ - $GOBIN remains optional and now defaults to $GOROOT/bin;
+   if you wish to use this new default, make sure it is in your $PATH
+   and that you have removed the existing binaries from $HOME/bin.
+As a result of these changes, the Go Makefiles have changed. If your Makefiles
+inherit from the Go Makefiles, you must change this line:
+    include ../../Make.$(GOARCH)
+to this:
+    include ../../
+This release also removes the deprecated functions in regexp and the 
+once package. Any code that still uses them will break.
+See the notes from the last release for details:
+Other changes:
+* 6g: better registerization for slices, strings, interface values
+* 6l: line number information in DWARF format
+* build: $GOBIN defaults to $GOROOT/bin,

 These new methods will, in a later release, replace the old methods for
 matching substrings.  The following methods are deprecated:
-    Execute (use Find)
-    ExecuteString (use FindString)
+    Execute (use FindSubmatchIndex)
+    ExecuteString (use FindStringSubmatchIndex)
     MatchStrings(use FindStringSubmatch)
     MatchSlices (use FindSubmatch)
     AllMatches (use FindAll; note that n<0 means 'all matches'; was n<=0)
