  -------
  
+ - The encodings package will now applies codec name aliases
+   first before starting to try the import of the codec module.
+   This simplifies overriding built-in codecs with external
+   packages, e.g. the included CJK codecs with the JapaneseCodecs
+   package, by adjusting the aliases dictionary in encodings.aliases
+   accordingly.
+ 
  - base64 now supports RFC 3548 Base16, Base32, and Base64 encoding and
    decoding standards.
