I suggest we add two new sections to the release notes.

(i) We could add a brief summary list of backward incompatible
changes. This should make it easier for people to see what to change
in their code. It duplicates part of the info in the release notes,
but could be useful, as it allows to see everything relevant at a glance.

Backward incompatible changes

* one-line summary list of backward incompatible changes
* list also deprecations

(ii) We could steal some ideas from Sympy and add a list of contributors
to the release notes. Sure, we have a list in THANKS.txt, but who actually
reads that?
