Just to be clear: I think the upgrading chapter already does a good
job of describing what tools to use.  The paragraph in whats-new
comparing tools looks completely redundant.

If you prefer not to remove it, would you mind moving it or marking it
fixme in the meantime?  Especially this close to a release, I worry
that it is easy to leave issues unaddressed and hence I try to get
things to as close to a releasable state as possible first, refining
