        necessary run-time dynalinking.
 
 After @15047:
-
        makes PerlIO preserve the binary/text mode of filehandles
        chosen by CRT library.  (However, TTY handles still are not
        clean, since switching them to TERMIO mode and back changes
        the NL translation law at runtime, and PerlIO level does not
        know this.)
+
+After @18156:
+       mkdir() rmdir() tolerate trailing slashes.
+       "localized" morphing to PM when already morphed would unmorph at end.
+       Convert \n to \r\n in REXX commands (Classic REXX would allow \r and
+               \r\n, but not \n as line-ends).
+
+After @19053:
+       Better detection of OS/2 in Configure scripts (if c:/ is not readable).
+       Better Configure support for \\ inside cpp-emited # lineno "filename".
+       Export pthread-support functions from threaded DLL.
+       [older change] If perl5.def file is present, the new perl5.def has
+               compatible ordinals.
+       OS/2 code compiles with threads enabled; much more robust pthreads
+               emulation (but some statics still present); survives fork().
+       New attributes supported with [f]stat() and chmod()
+                 archived is 0x1000000 =  0100000000
+                 hidden   is 0x2000000 =  0200000000
+                 system   is 0x4000000 =  0400000000
+               If extra flag 0x8000000 = 01000000000 is missing during
+               chmod(), these 3 flags are ignored; this extra flag
+               is set in the result of stat() [this provides backward
+               compatibility, as well as transparency of stat()/
+               chmod() supporting DOSISH].
+       OS/2-specific modules use XSLoader now.
+       Remove DLLs manually after failing build (link386 would not?!).
+       Special-case stat()ing "/dev/nul" and "/dev/null" too.
+       Update dlopen() and friends: preserve i387 flags, better error messages,
+               support name==NULL (load for "this" DLL);
+       OS2::DLL does not eval() generated functions, uses closes instead;
+               new method wrapper_REXX() for DLL objects.
+
+After @19774:
+       Use common typemap for OS2:: modules.
+       New test file os2/perlrexx.cmd (should be run manually; does not it
+               exit too early???).
+       Export fork_with_resources(), croak_with_os2error() from DLL.
+       usleep() availability put in %Config{}.
+       Combine most (but not all!) statics into one struct.
+       New load-on-demand C functions 
+               Dos32QueryHeaderInfo
+               DosTmrQueryFreq

+               WinLoadPointer
+               WinQuerySysPointer      
+       Check "\\SEM32\\PMDRAG.SEM" before loading PM-specific DLLs.
+       Handling of system {realname} was not correct in presence of
+               exe-type deduction, #!-emulation etc.
+       Use optimized PUSHTARG etc. XSUB convention.
+       $^E stringification contains PMERR_INVALID_HWND, PMERR_INVALID_HMQ, 
+               PMERR_CALL_FROM_WRONG_THREAD, PMERR_NO_MSG_QUEUE,
+               PMERR_NOT_IN_A_PM_SESSION if these errors are not in .MSG file

+       PERLLIB_PREFIX augmented by PERLLIB_582_PREFIX, PERLLIB_58_PREFIX,
+               PERLLIB_5_PREFIX (example for 5.8.2, the first one present is

+       New function OS2::Timer(): returns Tmr-timer ticks (about 1MHz) since

+               is void.
+       New executables perl___<number> generated with decreased stack size
+               (good when virtual memory is low; e.g. floppy boot).
