I've had quite a few hits on my little summary "what's cooking for 7.0"
page, so I concurr the people are interested.

I suggest to make an official section on the web which
will host these kind of articles. Sort of tied into the release system,
so in addition to the usual "Release notes", "Errata", "Supported
platforms" and other documents, each .0 version would have a
"Highlights" section (one or, preferebly, more pages) with a high-level
to mid-level description of the new (non arch-specific) features,
presented as "selling points" for the whole RELENG branch.

I know that there's a short paragraph or two about new features in the
release notes currently, and I think this should stay, but I really
think there's a need for longer articles hosted on the official (i.e.
not on third-party) web site.

If this passes in some form, I volunteer to write about the
storage-oriented things such as gjournal, ZFS & similar.
