Description Jonathan Pobst 2011-08-25 10:39:24 UTC
At the end of the installer, it launches the release notes in a browser.

It would probably be better to launch to some getting started documentation instead, as the release notes aren't really useful to a new user.

People who are upgrading will be doing it through MD will be presented release notes in the upgrade window, as release notes matter more to upgraders.

This is fixed in 8.10 (XS shows the release notes, and nothing pops up in the browser).
