Already done:
although the only place it appears to be mentioned (other than the 
archives of the mailing lists) is in the 5.3 release announcement:
and perhaps recent 4.x announcements, I didn't look there.

I guess the Handbook and a few other places haven't been updated yet, or 
I missed it when I looked at them.  Maybe among all the other things I 
want to get done tonight, I'll find time to file a PR on that (if it 
hasn't been done already).
