* "world" does no longer include "system" unconditionally, but you can add
"@system" to the worldfile to restore the old state.
+* The parallel-fetch feature is now enabled by default. It is optimized
+ to avoid doing redundant checksums for previously downloaded files that have
+ the correct size. Run `tail -f /var/log/emerge-fetch.log` in a
+ terminal to view parallel-fetch progress. Add FEATURES="-parallel-fetch"
+ to /etc/make.conf if you want to disable this feature.
+* For extra careful dependency handling, emerge has a new --complete-graph
+ option that causes it to consider the deep dependencies of all packages from
+ the system and world sets. With this option enabled, emerge will bail out
+ if it determines that the given operation will break any dependencies of
+ the packages that have been added to the graph. Unlike the --deep option,
+ the --complete-graph option does not cause any more packages to be updated
+ than would have otherwise been updated with the option disabled.
