While making some changes to the contents of release notes, we started questioning the entire concept. Is the RN a snapshot of the current situation, or just a "what's new" since the previous one? For example, we have a Compatibility heading. In the snapshot scenario, the text under it remains mostly unchanged through the versions (unless something relevant happens). In the "what's new" approach, if there is no change in compatibility, the entire section is omitted.

What do you all think?
