I've now made the following changes to the release-notes draft for the final build:

(1)  Reordered the sections describing new features so that they occur in the same order as the list of one-liners at the beginning of the document.

(2)  Removed all the "red text".

(3)  Scaled down the larger graphics.

The middle section, with its detailed description of new features, is clearly not appropriate for showing in the narrow Mac install window, even with reduced-sized graphics.  

So for the install window I've produced a somewhat edited version of the release notes in which all the graphics and feature elaborations are omitted -- this again a Google doc, this one named "Text_for_Installer_5", and with the same collaborators as the release notes.  I also attach a pdf of the current version of that document below.
