=== Language changes

* Regexp properties (\p{}) names now ignore underscores, spaces, and case, so
  \p{ol chiki} is the same as \p{Ol_Chiki}
* Regexps now support Unicode 5.1 (new characters and scripts)
* \d, \s, and \w are now ASCII only; use POSIX bracket classes and \p{} for
  Unicode semantics
* $: no longer includes the current directory, use require_relative

=== Compilation options

* --program-prefix and --program-suffix no longer act on the shared object
  names nor paths to libraries.

  use --with-rubylibprefix='${libruby}/${RUBY_INSTALL_NAME}' and
  --with-soname='${RUBY_INSTALL_NAME}' for the same result as Ruby 1.9.1.

* --with-arch is added for universal binary, instead of
  --enable-fat-binary option.

  * Enumerator#rewind
  * Socket#recvfrom
  * Socket#recvfrom_nonblock
