E.g. some structure like

+1, though I think we can remove 2.1.0 from the list as it is superceded by 2.2.1.

When I started trying to automate more of the release process for 2.0.11, I already did this
(moved to a branch now):

There was general support, but I also split the release notes which raised some concerns.
And then I ran out of spare time with my holiday, etc. :)

I believe consensus was:
- use JIRA as the authoritative source for release notes
- support the split structure provided above for posting online (later moving to pull information
from JIRA)
- also produce an aggregated release notes (I believe for a series, not all releases), which
can be done automatically

So, options:
- merge down just the bits that split into stable / preview versions
- fix the aggregated release notes and merge the lot


I'll update the branch for current versions.
