+- Python 3 is now a first class citizen! We now support both
+ Python 2.7 and Python 3.4 or later.
+- Major updates to internal tooling to pave the way for federation.
+ - Massive overhaul to the database layout (particularly in
+ permitting generic relations)
+ - OAuth updates
+ - Updating how we handle collections
+ - Add a "graveyard" system with tombstones for keeping information
+ about removed objects
+ - Large overhaul to how "comments" work. In federation, many things
+ can reply to many things, so we had to loosen the model.
+- If your user has some collections available, these will be presented
+ as a dropdown option while submitting media.
+- Begin using Alembic for migrations
+- Lots of bugfixes and etc
