* Lin Lin's ACE (Adaptively Compressed Exchange) for hybrid functionals (experimental, activate with -D__EXX_ACE) (Ivan Carnimeo)
* Improved real-space treatment of Q and beta functions with Fourier filtering (Stefano de Gironcoli)
* Support for new, improved Goedecker-Hutter-Teter pseudopotentials generated by Santana Saha (Sebastiano Caravati)
* EPW: Automatic documentation using Ford
* EPW: Restart after epmatwp1 is written with arbitrary number of cores

Please note that some input variables have been removed (see the full list there).

I hope that you will like this new version that should solve some of the bugs that you guys reported (thank you for that) and
there should be quite substantial speed optimization as well.
