svnmerge.py vs. build-in merge support since version 1.5

I have been using svnmerge.py for quite a while and although I was looking
forward for the build-in functionality it worked quite well. After now
upgrading to version 1.6 with the build-in functionality that replaces the
need for svnmerge.py I'm a little surprised that not all of the script
functionality seems to be available or I'm just unable to find it:
1) svnmerge.py did generate an informative commit message listing all the
logs of the merged revisions is generated in a text file, as a suggestion
for a good commit message. Is this no longer available in the build-in
support?
2) When suing svnmerge.py for development branches it had a "merge
everything" command (does everything automatically) that also kept track of
the directory the branch has been made of. This does no longer seem to be
available.
3) Is there any documentation that explains the differences between
svnmerge.py and the new build-in functionality?

I would love to understand if I just did not find the functionality, it is
not yet available or it has been omitted on purpose.
