	(7.2.0- changes)

	8.4.0m1 moved @follow from _bonds to _compliance
	8.4.0m1 @follow priority management should be better now
	8.4.0m1 @navigate in _compliance (support for automated navigation)
	8.4.0m1 an attempt at fixing repeated autolock
	8.4.0m1 message 42 (INTERFERENCE_STATE) allowing system modules to react to interference. Proof of concept: _ambiance will now shut off audio output entirely when type S interference is present.
	8.4.0m1 support for 'weapon' bus messages to _sentinel
	8.4.0m1 removed 'light' message (old OSL will no longer work fully)
	8.4.0m1 'power' message now sends every 10 seconds to all devices; format changed from percentage to float
	8.4.0m1 'rate' and 'power' now send to any newly-attached device
	8.4.0m1 converted arabesque 'sound' and 'preload' verbs into actual system commands
	8.4.0m1 arabesque 'vox' command now '@sound vox ...'
	8.4.0m1 interference now in _coil (introduced bug? interference not applied if shield fails)

	8.4.0m1 port protocol
	8.4.0m1 @persona now lists active RLV folder
	8.4.0m1 new probe strategy for finding batteries on attach: system probes 6 times at a normal interval until it finds a battery; this may solve every issue forever?
	8.4.0m1 refactor _console-screen::_manager into _core and _interface (expect bugs)
	8.4.0m1.1 finished incomplete optimization of _power that was causing charging issues
	8.4.0m1.2 implemented '@navigate auto'
	8.4.0m1.2 cleaned up '@zap'

	8.4.0m1.3 progress on fixing exhibition-tty listener overflow
	8.4.0m1.3 fixed HUD removing section -1 for devices that did not have a section
	8.4.0m2 simple @off, @halt and @reboot commands
	8.4.0m2 @send <range> <channel> <message> - range is 0 (regionsayto self), 10 (whisper), 20 (say), 100 (shout), region (regionsay), UUID (regionsayto)
	8.4.0m2 fixed HUD not responding to @probe—no more need to reboot to make the HUD show up!
	8.4.0m2 public bus 'trigger' verb for event handling (_arabesque should hook for event-driven e_ action notecards; provide linked message API for other programs to respond, too)—this could be used for adding on extra custom environmental reactions to things like sitting on a charger or leaving a display booth; similar to 'navigate'; consider adding e_attach?
	8.4.0m2 renamed '_init' script to 'e_boot'
	8.4.0m2 added 'e_charge-start', 'e_charge-stop', 'e_shutdown' events
	8.4.0m2 arabesque now issues commands with id of script activator, not unit; added $user and $username evars for object that activated the script
	8.4.0m2 added 'H^ ' for deleting spaces before variables in arabesque.
	8.4.0m2 restructured menus into putative 8.4.0 format
	8.4.0m2 @commands reindex

	8.4.0m2 full RLV relay (new External Restriction Interface (ERR) module named _restraint, not to be confused with old CSB module name)

	8.4.0m2 ERR multiple restraint source integration
	8.4.0m2 ERR restraint removal

	8.4.0m2.1 fixed missing menu graphics in manage > policy
	8.4.0m2.1 commands will automatically re-index rather than reporting 'command not found' if no commands are known
	8.4.0m2.1 HUD should now accept messages from non-controller peripherals; should make @rainbow work correctly
	8.4.0m2.1 menu states for _restraint options
	8.4.0m2.1 _foundation will now auto-boot after reset once _oem is done loading—let's find out if this is a bad idea!
	8.4.0m2.1 basic captive audio (audience); no point in using it yet, though; has the awkward habit of punching through intended deafness
	8.4.0m2.1 work on fixing xanadu 8.3 bug that prevents available updates from being displayed
	8.4.0m2.1 improved HUD efficiency; cleaned up possible sources of misbehavior e.g. stuck hovertext

	8.4a revalued jump to be 403 J/sec instead of 203 J/sec
	8.4a fixed a bug where rejected devices would install anyway

	8.4a automatically add accepttp exceptions for owners provided the unit can teleport
	8.4a UPM CLI: @guest
	8.4a UPM consent
	8.4a UPM menu interface (included under manage > users)
	8.4a fixed 'previous' and 'next' buttons on user browser
	8.4a UPM integration for _restraint and _compliance::navigate
	8.4a UPM-authorized adding for light bus devices not owned by unit

	8.4a ATOS real death (messages 905 and 906)
73	8.4a Cleaned up bootstyle and boot sequence slightly
	8.4b.-1.20160601 Added additional exceptions to guest access for controller and self access (when unit is own guest)

	8.4b.-1.20160601 require basic local access to control the dwm session - no more menu prompts for rejectees
	8.4b.-1.20160601 RLV relay should default to off!

	8.4b.-1.20160716 resolved enormous and redundant lists of secure commands in the @commands index
	8.4b.-1.20160716 @audience; audience will now respect subsystem status and interference for hearing (still needs ERR integration)
	8.4b.-1.20160716 no execution of e_boot? issue seemed to go away when poked
	8.4b.-1.20160716 started implementation of chassis spec; _foundation and _power on stack-heap watch

	8.4b.-1.20160724 fixed faulty management of temporary whitelist and temporary blacklist causing stride corruption
	8.4b.-1.20160724 @range command for follow control; also @leash now aliases to @follow
	8.4b.-1.20160724 new order for subsystems: video, audio, move, teleport, rapid, voice, mind, preamp, power amp, radio in, radio out, GPS, identify. This will affect t3z's old power profile scripts for Arabesque. (They have been updated. Some may have changed a little.)
	8.4b.-1.20160724 switch to using list facilities for summing elements in _power
	8.4b.-1.20160724 chassis specification support: _foundation, _power, and _sentinel (ATOS/E 12.0.1) now all recognize a number of chassis options using messages 993 and 994 from _puppet (updated chassis controller module will be released soon)
	8.4b.-1.20160731 resolved totally useless shutdown behavior
	8.4b.-1.20160731 fixed abnormal windlight changes during charging
	8.4b.-1.20160731 @policy command implemented; doesn't actually affect the system yet, though
	8.4b.-1.20160731 empty fields now hidden in @about; serial prefix is now "NS" for non-DAX and non-SXD units (otherwise still "SXD").
	8.4b.-1.20160731 @unleash to mirror @leash
	8.4b.-1.20160813 '@persona probe' to force refresh of personas list

	8.4b.-1.20160910 fixed '@navigate stop'
	8.4b.-1.20160910 added 100 kJ cap to @zap when _sentinel is installed (not foolproof; can cause disasters if multizap is used)
	8.4b.-1.20160910 fixed redundant dialog menus opening when touch screen is used (caused by conflicts in local guest access code)
	8.4b.-1.20160910 added optional header file for coilDDT so messages can be named
	8.4b.-1.20160910 menu controls for basic policy features
	8.4b.-1.20160910 local command input on /1, like OC commands (see '@commands local' and '@commands prefix')
	8.4b.-1.20160910 serial numbers not of length 9 will now be displayed without hyphens in the boot sequence and @about

	8.4.0m5 fixed a case causing corruption of temporary white/black lists (numbers appearing in lists)
	8.4.0m5 require basic remote access to create a tty session - no more menu prompts for rejectees; unfortunately this means that old remote consoles (before 1.5) no longer work

	8.4.0m5 don't ask for permission to respond to ! commands in RLV (??? seems to already be fixed)
	8.4.0m5 default to verbosity = 1

	8.4.0m5 IRR implementation: radio limitations (implementation restriction: clearing the user list can cause exceptions to linger until reattach)

	8.4.0m6 fixed HUD "0/-1" problems
