Need an attractive name

It contains the instructions for installing from scratch and for
upgrading an existing installation. It contains the bug-list.
It contains all the revisions we should have made to the manual
since the manual's last printing. It's three to umpteen
stapled-together sheets. It's a pain in the poopick. It's,
yes, the Release Notes.

Folks, does someone have a better name for this document?
Release Notes sounds like a heap of unstructured technicalities,
which of course is what it is; but isn't there something that
sounds more attractive? Not ReadMe; we have one of those too, an
ascii file. Not "What's New" or "Flash!"; we are not a cute
company. Something like "Upgrade Guide" (which I'd use if it
didn't have installation instructions for new users too)...

Anyone seen a good appropriate name in the field, or have a
good idea?
