+Known Regressions
+-----------------
+
+We do our best to improve IPython, but there are some known regressions in 0.11 relative
+to 0.10.2.
+
+* The machinery that adds functionality to the 'sh' profile for using IPython as your
+ system shell has not been updated to use the new APIs. As a result, only the aesthetic
+ (prompt) changes are still implemented. We intend to fix this by 0.12.
+
+* The installation of scripts on Windows was broken without setuptools, so we now
+ depend on setuptools on Windows. We hope to fix setuptools-less installation,
+ and then remove the setuptools dependency.
