the arguments of the EventState.reinitializeBegin method have changed;
some protected fields which already had public accessors in AbstractStepInterpolator have
been replaced.
+There is a behavior change that users of the multiple regression classes should be aware
of. In version
+2.1, there was no way to estimate models without intercept terms, and, while this was not
clear from
+the documentation, design (X) matrices needed to include initial unitary columns. In 2.2,
initial
+unitary columns are not necessary and whether or not models include intercept terms is configurable.
+See the change log and javadoc for the classes in org.apache.commons.math.stat.regression
for details.

The major new features are:
a new FastMath class, both faster, more accurate and with a few additional functions than
StrictMath and Math;
a new package for floating point arbitrary precision computing, including high level functions
like exponential, sine, square root ...;
