[plt-dev] Release Announcement for v4.2.5 -- 2nd call

Perhaps we should start preparing two versions here on plt-dev. One
version for emails & the blog post, one for the short places.

And, reading Carl's second blurb, I'm convinced that it belongs in the
longer announcement.

For the shorter one, I think that futures go on, but I'm not sure what else.
