        <li>Finalization is now supported. Note that finalization is currently
          only done for a subset of the situations in which it should occur.</li>
+       <li>Experimental support for <em>scalar</em> character components with
+         deferred length (i.e. allocatable string length) in derived types has
+         been added. (Deferred-length character variables are supported since
+         GCC 4.6.)</li>
