Just to keep Valery from thinking that that web page can not be easily
found:  Go to www.r-project.org and click on `Developer Page' under the
heading `R Project'.  

A suggestion (for CRAN masters?):  On CRAN there is a link to the NEWS file
for the released version.  Maybe it's a good idea to provide one for
alpha/beta version (when available) as well?  The Windows-specific NEWS is
provided for the alpha/beta.

The NEWS file in the alpha/beta releases that have been made available, 
and announced on R-devel, have details of the changes, major and minor.

Or just wait for the release on Monday October 4th.
