+## new APIs for sharing content
+Use `shared_context` together with `include_context` to share before/after
+hooks, let declarations, and method definitions across example groups.
+Use `shared_examples` together with `include_examples` to share examples
+across different contexts.
+All of the old APIs are still supported, but these 4 are easy to remember, and

+See `shared_context` and `shared_examples` under "Example Groups" for more
+## `treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values`
+Yes it's a long name, but it's a great feature, and it's going to be the
+default behavior in rspec-3. This lets you add metadata to a group or example
+like this:
+ describe "something", :awesome do
+ ...
+And then you can run that group (or example) using the tags feature:
+ rspec spec --tag awesome
+We're making this an opt-in for rspec-2.6 because `describe "string", :symbol`
+is a perfectly legal construct in pre-2.6 releases and we want to maintain
+compatibility in minor releases as much as is possible.

the `rspec` command no longer supports the `--options` command line option

3. In RSpec-1, the rake task would read in rcov options from an `rcov.opts`
