These seem too minor to mention in a release announcement. (FWIW, I
think the first one was included in 6.0.1.)

Possibly, it's worth noting the upgraded native libraries on Windows
and Mac OS X:

 * Upgraded and normalized versions of graphics libraries and
   dependencies (Pango, Cairo, GLib, etc.) that are bundled with Racket
   on Windows and Mac OS X. For example, FreeType support is
   consistently enabled.

Like Robby's bullets, though, feel free to leave that one out.
