-This package is a beta.  This means that API may change in an
-incompatible way in the future (however, the wire format will *not*
-change).  It's unlikely that any big changes will be made, but we can
-make no promises.  Expect a non-beta release in late August 2008.
 C++ Installation - Unix
 If you are using Cygwin or MinGW, follow the Unix installation
 instructions, above.
+Binary Compatibility Warning
+Due to the nature of C++, it is unlikely that any two versions of the
+Protocol Buffers C++ runtime libraries will have compatible ABIs.
+That is, if you linked an executable against an older version of
+libprotobuf, it is unlikely to work with a newer version without
+re-compiling.  This problem, when it occurs, will normally be detected
+immediately on startup of your app.  Still, you may want to consider
+using static linkage.  You can configure this package to install
+static libraries only using:
+  ./configure --disable-shared

+Development Warning
+The Python implementation of Protocol Buffers is not as mature as the C++
+and Java implementations.  It may be more buggy, and it is known to be
+pretty slow at this time.  If you would like to help fix these issues,
+join the Protocol Buffers discussion list and let us know!
