There is one thing i see missing and i think it wasn't 
discussed at the release meeting: (more) documentation 
about the AST compiler.  This seems sensible especially
if the focus of the release is the AST compiler ... 

Adrien, Ludovic, do you already have something? 
ASFAIK we only have rough documentation on the Parser
(in parser.txt) but none on the compiler?!   Maybe we 
can take a bit from CPython and amend it to include
references to our file locations and some translation 
aspects/motivations for our changes?

also here i believe it should be explained what the main 
steps were to obtain the major speed improvements.
