 ### New Features
 
-[TODO]
+1. Parameters (config keys) can now be defined in YAML, using `brooklyn.parameters`.
+This allows YAML entities to advertise how they should be parameterized,
+for use in the UI and in documentation tools, and do coercion on these values.
+For a good demonstration, see the "Custom Entities" section of the YAML chapter of the user
guide. 
+
+[ TODO - 
+restructuring and graduation; 
+the `br` client CLI tool;
+test framework;
+`$brooklyn:external(...)` extension for taking values from other sources is supported in
more places;
+better YAML editor in the UI;
+OSGi-native mode using Karaf, to simplify packaging of blueprints;
+a new pure-java WinRM client (winrm4j), hugely reducing the number of dependencies and distro
size;
+several version bumps (jclouds) and performance and reliability improvements
+]

 3. Task cancellation is now propagated to dependent submitted tasks, including backgrounded
tasks if they are transient.
 Previously when a task was cancelled the API did not guarantee semantics but the behaviour
was to cancel sub-tasks only 
 in very limited cases. Now the semantics are more precise and controllable, and more sub-tasks
are cancelled.
 This can prevent some leaked waits on `attributeWhenReady`.
