#### EEx

  * [EEx] Consistently trim newlines when you have a single EEx expression per \ 
line on multiple lines

#### Elixir

  * [Code] Quote `::` in `Code.format_string!/1` to avoid ambiguity

  * [Kernel] Properly merge and handle docs for callbacks with multiple clauses
  * [Kernel] Guarantee reproducible builds on modules with dozens of specs
  * [Kernel] Resolve `__MODULE__` accordingly in nested `defmodule` to avoid \ 
double nesting
  * [Kernel] Type variables starting with an underscore (`_foo`) should not \

  * [Kernel] Keep order of elements when macro `in/2` is expanded with a literal \ 
list on the right-hand side
  * [Kernel] Print proper location on undefined function error from dynamically \ 
generated functions
  * [Kernel] **Potentially breaking** Do not leak aliases when nesting module \ 
definitions that are fully namespaced modules. If you defined `defmodule \ 
Elixir.Foo.Bar` inside `defmodule Foo`, previous Elixir versions would \ 
automatically define an alias, but fully namespaced modules such as \ 
`Elixir.Foo.Bar` should never define or require an alias. If you were \ 
accidentally relying on this broken behaviour, your code may no longer work
  * [System] Make sure `:init.get_status/0` is set to `{:started, :started}` \ 
once the system starts
  * [Path] Do not expand `~` in `Path.expand/2` when not followed by a path separator
  * [Protocol] Ensure `debug_info` is kept in protocols
  * [Regex] Ensure inspect returns valid `~r//` expressions when they are \ 
manually compiled with backslashes
  * [Registry] Fix ETS leak in `Registry.register/2` for already registered \ 
calls in unique registries while the process is still alive

#### ExUnit

  * [ExUnit] Raise error if attempting to run single line tests on multiple files
  * [ExUnit] Return proper error on duplicate child IDs on `start_supervised`

#### IEx

  * [IEx] Automatically shut down IEx if we receive EOF

#### Logger

  * [Logger] Don't discard Logger messages from other nodes as to leave a trail \ 
on both systems

#### Mix

  * [mix compile] Ensure Erlang-based Mix compilers (erlang, leex, yecc) set \ 
valid position on diagnostics
  * [mix compile] Ensure compilation halts in an umbrella project if one of the \ 
siblings fail to compile
  * [mix deps] Raise an error if the umbrella app's dir name and `mix.exs` app \ 
name don't match
  * [mix deps.compile] Fix subcommand splitting bug in rebar3
  * [mix test] Do not consider modules that are no longer cover compiled when \ 
computing coverage report, which could lead to flawed reports

### 3. Soft-deprecations (no warnings emitted)

#### Mix

  * [Mix.Config] `Mix.Config` has been deprecated in favor of the `Config` \ 
module that now ships as part of Elixir itself. Reading configuration files \ 
should now be done by the `Config.Reader` module

### 4. Hard-deprecations

#### Elixir

  * [CLI] Deprecate `--detached` option, use `--erl "-detached"` instead
  * [Map] Deprecate Enumerable keys in `Map.drop/2`, `Map.split/2`, and `Map.take/2`
  * [String] The `:insert_replaced` option in `String.replace/4` has been \ 
deprecated. Instead you may pass a function as a replacement or use \ 
`:binary.replace/4` if you need to support earlier Elixir versions

#### Mix

  * [Mix.Project] Deprecate `Mix.Project.load_paths/1` in favor of \ 
`Mix.Project.compile_path/1`
