I tried that first, but I think I got it better if I just worked it
into the paragraph that was already there. For an example, see:
http://builder.hagander.net/pgdoc/release-8-3-1.html

I can easily change it back to your wording if you think that's better,
but you did mean that as a separate paragraph, correct?

If people like this method, I'll go through the release.sgml file and
make the change for other versions as well. It's a simple cut/paste...
Patch is as simple as:
    <para>
     This release contains a variety of fixes from 8.3.0.
+    For information about new features in the 8.3 release, see
+    <xref linkend="release-8-3">.
    </para>


(obviously it needs to be backpatched to the stable branch to make any
difference for the links on the website)

So. Objections? Better wordings?
