The release notes *are* on the wiki. Though I think only a couple people
have ever updated them aside from myself. When I was indisposed for a
month or so nobody touched them.
The issue Isaac has, as well as myself to some extent, is that wiki
documentation is not being fed back to the core project documentation
thus creating two sources for docs instead of one.
