These seem too minor.

Maybe worth mentioning:

 * Optimizations in the bytecode compiler improve performance for
   structure operations.

Probably worth mentioning, since it can help with a common annoyance:

 * The `PLT_COMPILED_FILE_CHECK` environment variable controls whether
   modify dates are checked on ".zo" files. Set the environment
   variable to "exists" to use a ".zo" file when it exists, independent
   of its modification date.

Besides the xrepl bullet, which I'll leave to Leif, maybe the
announcement should include a note on `racket/interactive`:

 * Racket requires `racket/interactive` on start-up in interactive
   mode, and the `racket/interactive` module is responsible for loading
   ".racketrc" as well as `xrepl`. See the docs on `racket/interactive`
   for more information.
