When your company releases a new version of software, how do you announce its new features?

Our company is looking for a better approach than our current method, which is a new-features guide that actually duplicates the same information included in the user manual. I've used other methods at other companies-such as a release notes text file and a new-features online help topic--but I have no idea which approach, if any, is better than another.

Any thoughts or recommendations from the community?

Thanks for your insights!
