 supporting paragraph though.  I don't know what else to call the header
 without seeming develop-y.

 I'm afraid I had my marketing hat on with the teaser for the BP REST API
 as one reason for PHP 5.3 on the road to modernizing the codebase as the
 headline ;)

 activation on the "Users > Manage Signups" admin page is a decent enough
 feature to highlight.  See #7261.

 feature is.  Do you have a link to the ticket where this was implemented?

 warrant featuring, but that's just my opinion.
 The `PHPMailer` was in the Beta 1 release post and can delete the
