In my test a few days ago I had to use apt-get update because of a bug
in aptitude which refused to update the files from the new source. I'm
not sure if this was only because I also changed to an other mirror. 

I'd change the release notes to tell users to do apt-get update to work
around this bug in woodys aptitude.
