There are few things that need to be mentioned in the NEWS file as well:

* support for MinGW cross-compiling
* the improvements in the handling of floats, e.g. unboxed floats
   on 32-bit platforms, float registers etc
* enumeration argument packing
* the improvments in support for compiling large programs

Also, it would probably be a good idea to include some of what Paul
has been working on, e.g. the loop control stuff.  I'll leave it
up to him as to what he would like to announce with this release.
