    98   * FIXME: ELF loading changes
     98  * Continuous effort to make our use of [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executable_and_Linkable_Format ELF binary format] more similar to other systems, to better exploit preexisting tools and libraries.
    9999  * Headers with structures and their respective member offsets shared between C code and assembly are no longer generated from a YAML description, but are instead provided in a readily-usable header file and checked for consistency by the build system.
    100100  * Userspace portions of HelenOS can now be built with undefined behavior sanitizer enabled, making it easier to detect certain kinds of problems.
