Not sure if that should be the date returned by gdalinfo --version, or the day 
the annoucement is made (which can be several days later after the voting 
process and finalization/annoucement of the release).
The wiki news page is mostly the result of a copy&paste of the SVN page (+ 
some minor formatting when the release manager has enough energy left to add 
some hyperlinks), so adding/updating the day in the NEWS in SVN could be done 
just before creating the tag, and then the wiki page would inherit from that.

That might indeed help to digest ~ 700 lines of content.
