This blog is updated daily.
A general description is here.
The behaviour of ‘unlink()’ for reparse points (including junctions and
symbolic links) has changed. It no longer follow links (deleting the
contents of the link target rather than the link), and it is able to
delete the link itself (given sufficient permissions).
‘Rcmd INSTALL --merge-multiarch’ will work (but do a normal install) if only one architecture is installed.
