a great man (who was subsequently cursed with syphilis) that summarizes the

Ihr habt den Weg vom Wurme zum Menschen gemacht, und Vieles ist in euch
noch Wurm. Einst wart ihr Affen, und auch jetzt ist der Mensch mehr Affe,
als irgend ein Affe.
Well, apart from all the various bugfixes that are included in the 2.2.1
