 ------------------------------------------------
 
  * Removed the long deprecated gcry_ac interface.  Thus Libgcrypt is
-   not anymore ABI compatible too previous versions.
+   not anymore ABI compatible to previous versions if they used the ac
+   interface.
 
  * Removed the module register subsystem.
 
  * The deprecated message digest debug macros have been removed.  Use
    gcry_md_debug instead.
 
+ * Removed deprecated control codes.
+
+ * Added support for the IDEA cipher algorithm.
+
+ * Added support for the Salsa20 and reduced Salsa20/12 stream ciphers.
+
+ * Added limited support for the GOST 28147-89 cipher algorithm.
+
+ * Added support for the GOST R 34.11-94 and R 34.11-2012 (Stribog)
+   hash algorithms.
+
+ * Added a random number generator to directly use the system's RNG.
+   Also added an interface to prefer the use of a specified RNG.
+
+ * Added support for the SCRYPT algorithm.
+
+ * Mitigated the Yarom/Falkner flush+reload side-channel attack on RSA
+   secret keys.  See <http://eprint.iacr.org/2013/448> [CVE-2013-4242].
+
+ * Added support for Deterministic DSA as per RFC-6969.
+
+ * Added support for curve Ed25519.
+
+ * Added a scatter gather hash convenience function.
+
+ * Added several MPI amd SEXP helper functions.
+
+ * Added support for negative numbers to gcry_mpi_print,
+   gcry_mpi_aprint and gcry_mpi_scan.
+
+ * The algorithm ids GCRY_PK_ECDSA and GCRY_PK_ECDH are now
+   deprecated.  Use GCRY_PK_ECC if you need an algorithm id.
