Is there a simple setting to disable the release notes in the startup screen, rather than modifying the core.el here? https://github.com/syl20bnr/spacemacs/blob/master/core/core-spacemacs-buffer.el#L360

    Have you tried toggling the [Release Notes] link in the spacemacs buffer and restarting? If I use that to toggle the notes off, they don't display when I start spacemacs again.

You can toggle the [Release Notes] link in the spacemacs buffer to hide the release notes - they should stay hidden after restarting from now on.
