it from source control:
-== Compatibility ==
+== Configuration changes ==
+* $wgUseETag, to enable/disable sending of HTTP ETag headers
+ (default: disabled)
+* $wgLegalTitleChars now includes '+' by default for better compatibility
+ with importing data dumps from Wikipedia
+* $wgDefaultUserOptions now includes all default option settings instead
+ of only overrides.
-MediaWiki 1.7 requires PHP 5 (5.1 recommended). PHP 4 is no longer supported.
-If you are unable to run PHP 5, you may have to stick with 1.6 for now.
+== Major new features ==
+* (bug 7098) Add an option to disable/enable sending of HTTP ETag headers,
+ as it seems to result in broken behaviour in combination with Squid 2.6
+ (disabled by default).
+* (bug 550) Allow blocks on anonymous users only.
+* (bug 6420) Render thumbnails for DJVU images, support multipage DJVU display
+ on image pages. Added new 'page=' thumbnail option to select a page from a
+ multipage djvu for thumbnail generation.

+ needs to have both plpgsql and tsearch2 already installed.
+* (bug 6386) fix grammatical errors in danish naming of talk namespaces.
+== Changes since 1.7 ==
+* Introduced AjaxResponse object, superceding AjaxCachePolicy
+* Changes to sajax_do_call: optionally accept an element to fill instead of a
+ callback function; take the target function or element as a third parameter;
+ pass the full XMLHttpRequest object to the handler function, instead of just
+ the resultText value; use HTTP response codes to report errors.
+* (bug 6562) Removed unmaintained ParserXml.php for now

+* (bug 6586) Regression in "unblocked" subtitle
+* Don't put empty-page message into view-source when page text is blank

+ or disallow account creation from blocked IP addresses. Prevent duplicate
+ blocks. Fixed the problem of expiry and unblocking erroneously affecting
+ multiple blocks. Fixed confusing lack of error message when a blocked user
+ attempts to create an account. Fixed inefficiency of Special:Ipblocklist in
+ the presence of large numbers of blocks; added indexes and implemented an
+ indexed pager.
+* (bug 6448) Allow filtering of Special:Newpages according to username
+* (bug 6618) Improve permissions/error detection in Special:Lockdb
+* Quick hack for extension testing: parser test doesn't create new message
+ cache object.
+* (bug 6299) Maintain parser's revision ID across recursive calls to fix
+ {{REVISIONID}} when Cite extension is used
+* (bug 6622) Removed deprecated function Image::newFromTitle

-Several changes to the database have been made from 1.6:
-* A new "langlinks" table tracks interlanguage links

+Some minor database changes have been made since 1.7:
+* new fields and indexes on ipblocks

the upgrade.
