Sorry, I misunderstood. preupgrade to f14 should work on release day,
as it should get the release data from (someone just has to
update stable=true on release day and sync it) -- what will take a few
days is for me to push a preupgrade package that enables the "There is
a new release available" notification.

There's no reason to push this on release day as clients only check
for new releases once a week by default.
