Version 1.4 (Git)
+* Symbol aliases
+The `--symbol' option has been extended to allow for defining
+symbol aliases. Aliases are useful for declaring reserved
+words such as `__restrict' or `__inline'. For example,
+the option `--symbol __restrict:=restrict' instructs cflow
+to treat `__restrict' exactly as `restrict'.
+* New syntactic class: qualifiers
+Tokens in this class can legitimately appear in place
+of C qualifiers, such as `static' or `inline'. This class
+is useful for some compiler-depending keywords, such as
+`__extension__' in gcc. The usual declaration of this symbol
+is `--symbol __extension__:qualifier'.
* Speed up recursive call detection.
* Fix parsing of typedefs after `struct'.
* Fix the output of branch marks in tree mode.
* Fix processing of static inline functions (RH bug 650716).
