 The module `scipy.misc.limits` was removed.
+The IO code in both NumPy and SciPy is being extensively
+reworked. NumPy will be where basic code for reading and writing NumPy
+arrays is located, while SciPy will house file readers and writers for
+various data formats (data, audio, video, images, matlab, etc.).
+Several functions in ``scipy.io`` are removed in the 0.8.0 release including:
+``npfile``, ``save``, ``load``, ``create_module``, ``create_shelf``,
+``objload``, ``objsave``, ``fopen``, ``read_array``, ``write_array``,
+``fread``, ``fwrite``, ``bswap``, ``packbits``, ``unpackbits``, and
+``convert_objectarray``.  Some of these functions have been replaced by NumPy's
+raw reading and writing capabilities, memory-mapping capabilities, or array
+methods.  Others have been moved from SciPy to NumPy, since basic array reading
+and writing capability is now handled by NumPy.
