That was one of the goals of the feature list. Not to be competitive but 
communicate early on, the features we were working on and it has 
resulted in a number of enthusiasts and the press, using it as their 
primary source of changes in the upcoming releases.

We could do more, of course.  Writing the release summary early on, can 
be quite useful for example. We just need more contributors working on it.
