+The 'buildbot' executable has acquired two new subcommands. 'buildbot
+debugclient' brings up the small remote-control panel that connects to a
+buildmaster (via the slave port and the c['debugPassword']). This tool,
+formerly in contrib/debugclient.py, lets you reload the config file, force
+builds, and simulate inbound commit messages. It requires gtk2, glade, and
+the python bindings for both to be installed.
+'buildbot status_gui' brings up a live status client, formerly available by
+running buildbot/clients/gtkPanes.py as a program. This connects to the PB
+status port that you create with:
+and shows two boxes per Builder, one for the last build, one for current
+activity. These boxes are updated in realtime. The effect is primitive, but
+is intended as an example of what's possible with the PB status interface.
+Note: both names are subject to change. The status_gui is currently
+completely broken, but I might manage to fix it before the next release.

bookmark. A goofy little default icon is included.
+** Deprecated features
+*** defining Builders with tuples is deprecated
+For a long time, the preferred way to define builders in the config file has
+been with a dictionary. The less-flexible old style of a 4-item tuple (name,
+slavename, builddir, factory) is now officially deprecated (i.e., it will
+emit a warning if you use it), and will be removed in the next release.
+Dictionaries are more flexible: additional keys like periodicBuildTime are
+simply unavailable to tuple-defined builders.
+Note: it is a good idea to watch the logfile (usually in twistd.log) when you
+first start the buildmaster, or whenever you reload the config file. Any
+warnings or errors in the config file will be found there.
+*** c['webPortnum'], c['webPathname'], c['irc'] are deprecated
+All status reporters should be defined in the c['status'] array, using
+buildbot.status.html.Waterfall or buildbot.status.words.IRC . These have been
+deprecated for a while, but this is fair warning that these keys will be
+removed in the next release.
+*** c['manholePort'] is deprecated
+Again, this has been deprecated for a while, in favor of:
+ c['manhole'] = master.Manhole(port, username, password)
+The preferred syntax will eventually let us use other, better kinds of debug
+shells, such as the experimental curses-based ones in the Twisted sandbox
+(which would offer command-line editing and history).
