the lable with the link in it refuses focus and isn't in the tab order. Oddly enough the release notes URL goes to Ubuntu.com and not the release notes, so the link is pretty useless for everyone right now!

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Handle the keyboard query window closed callback being fired twice
    (LP: #865493).
  * Allow focusing of labels when we're in the screen reader
    acessibility profile, so that Orca can read them
    (LP: #856782, LP: #856773).
  * Make sure we account for the size of the installation and swap
    partition when calculating the bounds for the partition resizer
    (LP: #769350).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Don't install duplicate copies of console-setup-apply,
    localechooser-apply, and netcfg-wrapper.
  * Bump fallback Ubuntu version number in ubi-language to 11.10.
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * For cases where selecting a different location may imply a different
    dialect of the language, i.e. Portuguese and Chinese, take care to set
    LANG to something reflecting the location and
    LANGUAGE/LC_MESSAGES/LC_CTYPE/LC_COLLATE to something reflecting the
    language (LP: #590108). This roughly matches the behaviour of
  * Automatic update of included source packages: localechooser 2.37ubuntu2,
    partman-partitioning 81ubuntu3.

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * Update ubiquity-dm to export self.username as SUDO_USER.
    Make gsettings work properly later on during the install.
  * Whenever we call wget, set --tries=1 instead of the default
    of 20.
  * If we think we're offline, don't try to contact geoip or run
    rdate. (LP: #868668)
