[wp-hackers] Registration of plugin options?

There was some talk around WP 2.7 about registration of plugin 
options, as I vaguely recall. Making it mandatory was dropped for 2.7. 
  What's happening in that regard for 2.8? Do we all need to update 
our plugins, or will they continue to work in 2.8?

I see a brief mention of registering settings on 
http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_API, but all it has is the two 
registration functions listed -- no text, examples, mention of how/why 
to use them, etc.

There is also nothing in 
or in http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Administration_Menus 
currently about registering options.

So could someone who knows what is going on either (a) update those 
pages in the Codex, or (b) explain here what is going on and ask for 
someone else to update them? or (c) (preferable) both explain here 
what we need to do to keep our plugins working and update the codex pages?
