New features are defined as changes that offer new or significantly enhanced API's. These features typically require [proposals|ZFPROP:home].

Functionality enhancements are defined as behavioral changes that do not affect- or minimally affect- one or more API's. Such functionality enhancements typically do not require a [proposal|ZFPROP:home]
