     1.4    - MaSh overhaul:
     1.5        - New SML-based learning engines eliminate the dependency on Python
     1.6          and increase performance and reliability.
     1.7 -      - Activation of MaSh now works via the "MaSh" system option (without
     1.8 -        requiring restart), instead of former settings variable "MASH".

    1.12 +      - MaSh and MeSh are now used by default together with the traditional
