Revised release notes paragraph:
Users upgrading from previous releases may notice that newly started applications during the upgrade procedure may display broken text, observable as "squares" instead of the text meant to be displayed. This is observable as a dialog that may popup during the upgrade procedure; it should read "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for evolution-alarm-notify. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly." and does not block the upgrade process. Users wishing to close that dialog should press the bottom button. This issue is only affecting the current session while the upgrade is being executed; and should no longer appear after rebooting the system once the upgrade is completed. This is being investigated as bug 1038573.
