Nothing (yes, ok famous last words :-).

At present the gdb/mi directory isn't built.  Enabling the MI would mean
building that directory and linking it into GDB.  For a DJGPP user, this
just means that GDB gained a few kilos.

The big change really occured ~2 months ago when ui-out became the
normal mechanism to use when outputing something.  Since the old
*_printf() interface remains, no one noticed (1) :-)


(1) Almost no one.  There were a few bugs where the output changed
slightly and where found the output was fixed.
