Hi folks,

A couple of features that were in the last v3.8.0-alpha releases will be 
reverted as we prepare to enter beta phase:


- Proper balancing of #end directives, braces, parentheses etc. will not 
be checked.

- String literals will again be limited to 256 characters.

- `defined()`, `#ifdef()` and `#ifndef()` will again return `false` if 
applied to reserved words.

- input file encoding will not be auto-detected.

- boost thread and system libraries will be required again.


Also, the handling of the `#version` directive and the `version` 
pseudo-variable are subject to review at this point.


I _think_ that should be all.
