\chapter{Feature Availability by EAPI}

\note This chapter is informative and for convenience only. Refer to the main text for specifics.
For lack of space, EAPIs 0, 1, and~2 have been consolidated into a single column in the table
below; entries marked with an asterisk differ between these EAPIs. See the 2012-09-20 edition
of this document for a complete table of previous EAPIs.
