+ virtualenvwrapper 2.9

 making it easier to work on more than one project at a time without
 introducing conflicts in their dependencies.
-What's New in 2.8
+What's New in 2.9
-This release includes a fix to make ``cpvirtualenv`` use the copy of
-``virtualenv`` specified by the ``VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_VIRTUALENV``
-variable. It also adds support for running the wrapper commands under
-the MSYS environment on Microsoft Windows systems (contributed by
+This release merges in the project directory management features
+previously delivered separately as ``virtualenvwrapper.project``.  The
+new command ``mkproject`` creates a working directory associated with
+a virtualenv, and can apply templates to populate the directory (for
+example, to create a new Django site).
+This release also adds a ``-r`` option to ``mkvirtualenv`` to specify
+a pip requirements file for packages that should be installed into the
+new environment after is is created.
+Upgrading to 2.9
+Version 2.9 includes the features previously delivered separately by
+``virtualenvwrapper.project``.  If you have an older verison of the
+project extensions installed, remove them before upgrading.
