Ah, hmm, well.

I haven't updated the NEWS file since the 1.6 release; it still
describes changes since 1.4.  This is an oversight, rather than a
deliberate policy!  I've scratched the file, and started again with
major changes since the 1.6 release (of which there aren't all that
many).  So in the next snapshot / beta, NEWS will be relevant again.

As to the `-V' flag, I replaced it with the `$version' variable.  This
makes it easy to find the version of the current rc, which you
couldn't do with the `-V' flag, and you can always say

    rc -c 'whatis version'

to get the effect of the old `-V'.
