I guess the main difference I recall are:
      * Mentioning of what makes $thisrelease better than $thisrelease--
      * A reasonably flat layout in one document.  No more than 2 levels
        of hierarchy (easy to digest)
      * Anything that needs more details is linked elsewhere
      * The document itself looks pretty.  If there is a compelling new
        style, then that theme is used (e.g., KDE).  If the website has
        a nice interface, than that style is used (Gnome).  I fear,
        currently, Fedora Project is lacking on both fronts, at least on
        the web side.
