Instructions for writing "What's new" entries#

Please place new portions of whats_new.rst in the next_whats_new directory.

When adding an entry please look at the currently existing files to see if you can extend any of them. If you create a file, name it something like cool_new_feature.rst if you have added a brand new feature or something like updated_feature.rst for extensions of existing features.

Include contents of the form:

Section title for feature

A bunch of text about how awesome the new feature is and examples of how
to use it.

A sub-section

Please avoid using references in section titles, as it causes links to be confusing in the table of contents. Instead, ensure that a reference is included in the descriptive text.
