The release notes are built automatically as part of the global release build 
process.  You can also build them directly by changing to the src/release/doc 
directory and doing a "make".  You'll need to have the docproj packages/ports 
installed in order to build them.

Just to keep waving the flag: the release is not yet finalized or out, so 
things may yet change.  The current contents should be considered a working 
draft, not the final version, until it's actually out the door and announced. 
We've had to delay releases at this point in the cycle before due to last 
minute discoveries or issues, and while I hope it doesn't happen this time 
around, we can't rule it out!
