If you're only going to mention some vague "some builtins had minor 
changes", then I'm fine with that. If you're going to enumerate all such 
changes, that will be a bigger job. There were 2 such changes I'm aware 
of: str.format_map (#6081) and the addition of alternate ("#") 
formatting to float, complex and decimal (#7094) __format__ methods.

For this announcement I don't think it's necessary to list them all.
