 +Changes from 5.1.x to 5.2.0
 +* MPFR mode (the -M option) is now ON PAROLE.  This feature is now being    *
 +* supported by a volunteer in the development team and not by the primary   *
 +* maintainer.  If this situation changes, then the feature will be removed. *
 +* For more information see https://......                                   *
 +1. Numeric scalars now compare in the same way as C for the relational
 +operators. Comparison order for sorting has not changed.  This only
 +makes a difference when comparing Infinity and NaN values with
 +regular numbers; it should not be noticeable most of the time.
 +2. If the AWK_HASH environment variable is set to "fnv1a" gawk will
 +use the FNV1-A hash function for associative arrays.
 +3. The CMake infrastructure has been removed. In the five years it was in
 +the tree, nobody used it, and it was not updated.
 +4. There is now a new function, mkbool(), that creates Boolean-typed
 +values.  These values *are* numbers, but they are also tagged as
 +Boolean. This is mainly for use with data exchange to/from languages
 +or environments that support real Boolean values. See the manual
 +for details.
 +5. As BWK awk has supported interval expressions since 2019, they are
 +now enabled even if --traditional is supplied. The -r/--re-interval option
 +remains, but it does nothing.
 +6. The rwarray extension has two new functions, writeall() and readall(),
 +for saving / restoring all of gawk's variables and arrays.
 +7. The new `gawkbug' script should be used for reporting bugs.
 +8. The manual page (doc/gawk.1) has been considerably reduced in size.
 +Wherever possible, details were replaced with references to the online
 +copy of the manual.
 +9. Gawk now supports Terence Kelly's "persistent malloc" (pma),
 +allowing gawk to preserve the contents of its variables and arrays
 +between runs. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL FEATURE!  For more information,
 +see the manual.
 +10. Support for OS/2 has been removed. It was not being actively
- 11. Some subtle issues with untyped array elements being passed to
++11. Similarly, support for DJGPP has been removed. It also was not
++being actively maintained.
++12. Some subtle issues with untyped array elements being passed to
 +functions have been fixed.
- Changes from 5.1.1 to 5.1.2
+ Changes from 5.1.1 to 5.1.x
  1. Infrastructure upgrades: Automake 1.16.5, Texinfo 6.8.
