Thank you for this very useful information. I don't understand why this
is not in a more prominent place on the website, as those are non
trivial changes (although everything seems to be fairly backwards
compatible, I had the waterfall running fine with my old config already).

Sadly, the upgrade didn't fix the problem I am tracking, so I'm going to
write a seperate email about that now.
