Major user noticable items this release include:
	- Compilation that encounters syntax errors is more robust.
	- An assertion failure involving placeholder_type was solved.
	- Many other minor bugs have been fixed; including a number of
	  segfaults and regressions present in 1.17.

messages continued to reference the proper IBM license, which was also
