This is a large release, moving onto modern architecture, and
introducing many new features for reviewers and administrators. This
includes Stale Ship-It! indicators, Trojan Source detection, Single
Sign-On, and more.

This change adds release notes covering all the public changes we want
to advertise for the release.

This lacks screenshots, but the plan is to add them in a follow-up
change.

Built the release notes. Checked for spelling errors, bad links, and
build errors.

Typo: priority -> prioritize

There's really only one underscore in our token prefix.

Could mention that we fixed a crash when trying to set custom API token policies.

    1. Was this something that affected RB4, or was it a bug that only occurred with the new API token UI work?

    2. This bug did not affect RB4, it was introduced in this change /r/11642 when a try block was split into two separate ones, making the policy variable become out of scope for the second block. So when you clicked on "save" in the editor it wouldn't actually save and the editor wouldn't close. The 2nd bug, where canceling out of the policy editor would revert to the 2nd previous value instead of the previous one, also appeared in RB4. The fixes are in this change /r/12616

    3. Ah okay. I'm leaving out the changes between RC1 and final, and just focusing on what's new in the final release compared to the previous series.

      Sounds like the second bug is worth including though.

    4. Sounds good. Also should I backport the second bug fix to 4.0.x?

    5. If it's really trivial to do, sure. If it's not, then we can leave it, as it's probably rarely hit.
