Author: stsp

New Revision: 1387102

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=1387102&view=rev
Log:
* publish/docs/release-notes/1.8.html
  (swig-py-star): Move to compatibility section since it describes an
    incompatible change. Also drop link to viewvc, we shouldn't be trying
    to link individual commits from here. If people are interested in
    that kind of stuff they'll know where to look.
