+** Improved Transport Layer Security (TLS) support in (web client)
+`http-request', `http-get', and related procedures from (web client) are
+able to access content over TLS ("HTTPS") since Guile 2.2.  However,
+that support lacked important facilities, which are now available.
+First, these procedures now have a #:verify-certificates?  parameter to
+enable or disable the verification of X.509 server certificates.  The
+new `x509-certificate-directory' SRFI-39 parameter specifies X.509
+certificates are searched for.  Second, HTTPS proxies are now supported
+(in addition to HTTP proxies) and the new `current-https-proxy'
+parameter controls that.  See "Web Client" in the manual for details.
 * New deprecations
 ** scm_t_uint8, etc deprecated in favor of C99 stdint.h
