 * SSL support is back!  However, the SSL code appears to be leaking
   quite a bit.
+* On Windows Python can't be run from a directory with non ASCII chars
+  in its path name (bug #1342).
+* The current releases of MinGW and Cygwin can't build Python extensions
+  since they don't support msvcr90.dll. The necessary bits and pieces are
+  already in Python and cygwin cvs.
 * Otherwise, the 3.0a1 release notes still apply, except hashlib no
   longer requires openssl.
