No, the release notes is the right place.  We certainly don't want to
get in the habit of "this bit of info is too important to risk users not
seeing it, let's impose a popup!"  -- that way lies madness.

Rather, the solution is to encourage people to read release notes.  I
would expect that anyone technical enough to care about which search
engine is used and then want to report a bug about it, would be
technical enough to know to read the release notes first.
