 Features Added
+- Merged the query plan support from both ``unimr.catalogqueryplan`` and
+  ``experimental.catalogqueryplan`` into ZCatalog. On sites with large number of
+  objects in a catalog (in the 100000+ range) this can significantly speed up
+  catalog queries. A query plan monitors catalog queries and keeps detailed
+  statistics about their execution. Currently the plan keeps track of execution
+  time, result set length and support for the ILimitedResultIndex per index for
+  each query. It uses this information to devise a better query execution plan
+  the next time the same query is run. Statistics and the resulting plan are
+  continuously updated. The plan is per running Zope process and not persisted.
+  You can inspect the plan using the ``Query Plan`` ZMI tab on each catalog
+  instance. The representation can be put into a Python module and the Zope
+  process be instructed to load this query plan on startup. The location of the
+  query plan is specified by providing the dotted name to the query plan
+  dictionary in an environment variable called ``ZCATALOGQUERYPLAN``.
 - Various optimizations to indexes _apply_index and the catalog's search
   method inspired by experimental.catalogqueryplan.
