 Backwards incompatible changes
-Major changes
 South tests
 ``INSTALLED_APPS`` and fiddles with the ORM as it runs, among other things), and
 was causing compatability problems with other applications.

+Data Migrations
+There was an annoying issue that caused failing data migrations under MySQL
+to suddenly run their backwards() method and produce an error completely
+unrelated to the original problem. This has been fixed.
+``./ migrate`` has gained a new ``--ignore-ghost-migrations``, which
+will temporarily silence South's complaining about missing migrations on disk
+if you really know what you're doing (i.e. temporary branch switching).
+In addition, --noinput is now correctly respected for the "./ migrate"
+A bug and some nondeterminism in the new dependency engine has been fixed
+(previously, dependencies were sometimes calculated wrongly, and the
+non-determinism meant that this only happened on certain architectures).
+Other changes
+A whole assortment of minor bugs has been fixed; for the complete list, see
+the `milestone in our Trac <`_.
