For sure that's possible and appreciated since actions "behind the
scenes" get more visible - and this is possible for all other features
and changes as well (if there's something to tell about)...

The "we" part in this statement is not clear - I suggest that "we" is
the Release Team that regularly has online meetings and can than arrange
when something shall be published.

So there are two kinds of articles/announcements
- first type is to announce that something is/shall be done for a
  particular problem/feature/... --> work happens/will happen in future
- second is a summary of changes that have been sponsored silently by
  agencies, companies, etc. as wrap-up for the final release in terms
  of a "thank you" page --> work happened in the past
