Quick update: behind testing, but the release notes are up.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ZestyZapus/ReleaseNotes/UbuntuStudio feel free
to add, remove, edit, etc to make sure we didn't miss any other changes.

Also, got in touch with Set about the website, both Krytarik and I have
administrator access, so we should be able to post tomorrow or when needed.
