Change subject: Release note updates for Impala 2.8

Patch Set 7:

File docs/topics/impala_new_features.xml:

Line 65:               <p rev="IMPALA-4572">
We should definitely also highlight IMPALA-1430 which fixes the slow COMPUTE STATS issue with
TIMESTAMP. COMPUTE STATS is now codegen'd even if there are TIMESTAMP columns. The JIRA is
not yet marked as fixed because there is some follow-on work, but the COMPUTE STATS issue

A naked now() function is a particularly bad example, because now() is already constant within
a query, so does not benefit from this improvement. A better example is something like:
