[Iris-Club] Breaking changes in Iris & deprecated symbols / notation

Dear Ralf,

Could you please briefly explain the motivation behind the change,
especially the preference of OFE over COFE?

Also I would like to ask if you have a versioning scheme for the
development, e.g., breaking changes should increase the major version
number, etc.

Thank you,

> Furthermore, we deprecated the notation ■ for embedding Coq assertions

> The old notations are provided by algebra.deprecated, so you can import
> that into your development to ease porting.
> The general plan is to provide such deprecated symbols whenever that is

> please let us know -- preferably via a merge request :)
> Happy hacking!
