I don't think the document should be in the release at all. The release
isn't timely, it's a snapshot of development, and a Future/TODO isn't
useful if it's not timely. Many of the items there are implemented, or
no longer a priority.
I think it should be on the wiki or in a documents section on the
website or something like that.

No, beta seems good. Mostly I think we need to test the packaging and
installation procedures (including the installation instructions). The
rest is fairly conservative changes, or changes that have been in use
for quite some time.
