Maybe, but not really -- something akin to the 'coming soon' page in our old
release notes.

The problem is that those things have already "come" (they're
perfectly usable right now) and we can't give any garantee that they
will be part of our official releases. Therefore, I don't think we
should add this kind of thing to our release notes.

I still think GNOME Journal is a good/better place to advertise those
new/cool stuff. We just need the writers. :-)

Just my 3 cents,
