Yes, good example. This can be done somewhat in advance (creating the
sections with the text description of the new features), then It's
relatively easy to capture and crop the final screenshots when we get
to Release Candidate stage.
I think this kind of document makes it very easy to appreciate the
incremental advances in UI and new features that have been added since
the previous release.
I'm strongly in favor and volunteer to create the document to put in
the News section.
