I want only to help makeing a better release note. IMO it is interesting to see how the libraries evolve, so any detailled information is welcome. Maybe the minor changes must go in a specific section. Why not have a section for libraries with major changes, another for minor changes and another for libraries with only patches, documentation, warning or inspection removal modifications, ..

I have identifies Any and Thread as the libraries having interface change or behavior change.
