How about:

    * The language dialog now suggests using "#lang" more strongly as
      the default language.  The interface no longer refers to it as the
      "Module language".

(IMO it is important since it's one of the few important things people
run into very early, and probably also some stronger mention for the
plt-edu people.)

I'll drop the svn part since it's irrelevant, but Ryan's gui should be
mentioned too, I think.
