+- added options ``-o`` and ``-t`` to the :command:`runspider` command
- documented :doc:`topics/autothrottle` and added to extensions installed by default. You still need to enable it with :setting:`AUTOTHROTTLE_ENABLED`
- major Stats Collection refactoring: removed separation of global/per-spider stats, removed stats-related signals (``stats_spider_opened``, etc). Stats are much simpler now, backwards compatibility is kept on the Stats Collector API and signals.
- added :meth:`~scrapy.contrib.spidermiddleware.SpiderMiddleware.process_start_requests` method to spider middlewares
