I added the following to the NEWS file.
This change was introduced for the following reasons
* It solves the "start score with chord" problem, where you have to
state \context Voice explicitly when a chord was the start of a
Staff or Score.
* With the new syntax, it is possible to distinguish between
articulations (or fingerings) which are for a single chord note,
and which are for the entire chord. This allows for per-note
fingerings, and is more logical on the whole.
