To me, personally, an obvious format for release notes and
other auxiliary content is
- markup-less as possible
- highly human-friendly
- directly renderable by GitHub
That is, Markdown or AsciiDoc, and QuickBook is not.

QuickBook is still a great alternative to DocBook,
but since arrival of capable generators and renderers
for simpler formats we no longer need such heavy-weight
processors. QuickBook is no longer compelling format.
