+* Release X.X.X (XX)
+** API docs
+Thanks to Thomas Vander Stichele, most of the docstrings have been converted
+to epydoc format. There is a utility in docs/gen-reference to turn these into
+a tree of cross-referenced HTML pages. Eventually these docs will be
+auto-generated and somehow published on the buildbot web page.
+** web page has a favicon
+When constructing the html.Waterfall instance, you can provide the filename
+of an image that will be provided when the "favicon.ico" resource is
+requested. Many web browsers display this as an icon next to the URL or
+bookmark. A goofy little default icon is included.
+** bug fixes
+The waterfall page has been improved a bit. A circular-reference bug in the
+web page's TextLog class was fixed, which caused a major memory leak in a
+long-running buildmaster with large logfiles that are viewed frequently.
+** twisted-2.0.0 compatibility
+Both buildmaster and buildslave should run properly under Twisted-2.0 . There
+are still some warnings about deprecated functions, some of which could be
+fixed, but there are others that would require removing compatibility with
+Twisted-1.3, and I don't expect to do that until 2.0 has been out and stable
+for at least several months. The unit tests should pass under 2.0, whereas
+the previous buildbot release had tests which could hang when run against the
+new "trial" framework in 2.0.
+The Twisted-specific steps (including Trial) have been updated to match 2.0
+** win32 compatibility
+Thankt to Nick Trout, more compatibility fixes have been incorporated,
+improving the chances that the unit tests will pass on windows systems.
 * Release 0.6.2 (13 Dec 2004)
 ** new features
