A note of changed behaviour between my previous version (18-Feb) and the development version (d/l today).
Previously a list could follow a header on the next line. In the development version, if the first line after a header contains a UL list item it will not be interpreted as a list item. Subsequent lines are.
== a header ==
* a list item, not interpreted as a list item
* a list item done correctly

I realise this may not be a bug, however it may disrupt some current wiki pages, so it would be good if it could be documented in the release notes.
