Where to keep future release note snippets for our future 2.8 release ?

(Accidentally sent to gnucash-user, I'll repost here for proper follow-up)

I know this is early. We're not thinking about releasing master yet.

However, I just pushed a commit [1] that changes an option on the transaction report. As a 
result saved reports/open reports may loose one option when users upgrade (if they had set 
this particular option).

I believe this is information we should pass on to users that are considering an upgrade so they 
know they have to check their saved/open reports afterwards.

First question would be: what's the best place to put this info so that most users will find it when 
upgrading ?

My first guess would be the release announcement. I'm open for other/additional locations.

As we're still far away of the new release I worry we'll forget to add this to the release 
announcement. So what can we come up with to remind us this has to be added when release 
is due ?
