Among various new features I am particularly pleased to welcome -- at
long last -- a clutch of random-number functions!
Skimming through it, it looks like there is some good stuff. The main thing I dislike is that some functions are being renamed and the old names are now undocumented (and some old names are unsupported except under version control.) Old habits tend to be hard to break, plus it can drive me nuts looking at old code and trying to figure out what a now-undocumented function is doing.
