Create a draft press announcement
Take the feature highlights and use them to compose a first draft press announcement.
Remember the 3x3! From those, pick the most important features to be mentioned. Again, First, Best, Only: something noteworthy.
The headline summarizes that we released our product ("openSUSE released 13.1"), the sub-title has the most important features that our awesome distro delivers. The following paragraph expands on those and leads to the details that follow.
Those not reading beyond the first paragraph must know the most important news! So, most important info there. Make sure to clearly answer the 5 W's & H in the first paragraph: Who is this about? What is the actual news? When does this happen? Where does this even take place? Why this is news? How is this happening?
Include details, numbers, facts and quotes.
1 page is best, 2 pages absolute maximum.
Check our previous announcements for more details. 12.3 is here: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-announce/2013-03/msg00001.html
