Bug#595463: Update for debian-live

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

I have enclosed a patch to update the release notes, first by updating
the package name from live-helper to live-build, and second, adding an
item in the installer section on the new live-installer support.

Regarding usb-hdd images, I'm not sure if that really needs to be stated
now in the release notes if it isn't going to be done until some
indefinite time in the future.
