Release Notes: In the kernel, work was made on the ACL & SD functions, memory management, cache, object manager, and IO. The subsystem saw improvements to regions and clipping, object cleanups, bitmap loading, callbacks and messaging, mouse messaging, console improvements, and initial VDM code. The libraries now feature non-client painting, bitmap loading, improved kernel32 process code, many of the ComXX exports, PSAPI work, and control panel applets. There were improvements to VFAT, the PCI Bus Master Controller, VGA, CDFS, and NDIS/NE2000, a setup application, fixes for MingW, and work on structured exception handling.
