 ============================
 
 We're pleased to announce the 1.8 release of PyPy. As habitual this
-release brings a lot of bugfixes, together with performance and memory improvements over
-the 1.7 release. The main highlight of the release is the introduction of
-`list strategies`_ which makes homogenous lists more efficient both in terms
-of performance and memory. This release also upgrades us from Python 2.7.1 compatibility to 2.7.2. Otherwise it's "business as usual" in the sense
-that performance improved roughly 10% on average since the previous release.
