 Upgrading
 ---------
-    Avro record classes used in map/reduce and Hadoop streaming code have
-    moved from org.apache.cassandra.avro to org.apache.cassandra.hadoop.avro,
-    applications using these classes will need to be updated accordingly.
+    - Upgrading from version 0.7.1 or later can be done with a rolling
+      restart, one node at a time.  You do not need to bring down the
+      whole cluster.

+    - The loadbalance command has been removed from nodetool.  For similar
+      behavior, decommission then rebootstrap with empty initial_token.
+    - repair now works on a token range, rather than the entire ring. This
+      means that "run repair against each node" will now repair the ring with
+      no redundant work.

+Features
+--------
+    - added CQL client API and JDBC/DBAPI2-compliant drivers for Java and
+      Python, respectively (see: drivers/ subdirectory and doc/cql)
+    - added distributed Counters feature; 
+      see http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/Counters
+    - optional intranode encryption; see comments around 'encryption_options'
+      in cassandra.yaml
+    - compaction multithreading and rate-limiting; see 
+      'compaction_multithreading' and 'compaction_throughput_mb_per_sec' in
+      cassandra.yaml
