+Version 0.16, released 2020-06-06
+* Progress output is now flushed after every write. This matters, when
+ the output goes to a pipe, because then Python would buffer the
+ output, meaning that progress output gets delayed until the buffer
+ fills up, and that's useless.
+* The documentation is now formatted using Subplot. Previously, the
+ manual and the acceptance test suite were split into separate, but
+ confusingly named files ( vs vmdb2.mdwn); now they are
+ combined. The manual has been cleaned up a bit.
+* Add a `quiet` field to the **grub step** to configure the kernel
+ boot to be quiet or not. Default is now not quiet, which is a change
+ from before.
+* Add a `timeout` field to the **grub step** to configure grub menu
+ timeout. Default is now zero seconds, which is a change from the
+ Debian default of five seconds.
+* Symbolic links can now be used in the **mkpart step** for device
+ files, thanks to Tim Small.
