F8 Live CD Installed has a button "Release notes" that when you click you get

F9 Alpha Live CD Installed has no Release notes button at all, why?
Release notes are a great source of information and I believe that they would be
valuable for lots of users.
That button has gone away for F9 because it makes no sense to have
release notes in the installer. Release notes are good for (1) making
decisions about whether you want to use a product, or (2) finding out
what's changed if you're the kind of person who just wants to dive in.
They don't help you at all if you're in the middle of installing.
Besides which, IIRC the bits to make the release notes actually display
properly inside Anaconda drag in a bunch of other requirements just to
get the installer running.
This is why we link to the Release Notes from the page where you
download the distribution. People who care about them in advance will
read them at that point; people who don't worry about them until they're
done will have them on disk when they're finished.
